Tennis star Andre Agassi has been quoted as saying "Image is everything." This may seem like an exaggeration, but it is true that, for many people, how they feel about their appearance means everything. Body image is a powerful factor in how we feel about ourselves, and those who suffer from a body image disturbance are vulnerable to a host of difficulties ranging from low self esteem to bulimia and anorexia nervosa. Body Image Disturbance: Integrating Theory, Assessment, and Treatment is a provocative analysis that successfully integrates explanations from social, interpersonal, feminist, and behavioral cognitive psychology. This unique book is packed with invaluable research, assessment, and treatment guidance. Clinicians, practitioners, and researchers will value this book for its rich, up-to-date coverage of how psychology grapples with the troubling relationship between appearance and identity.
