Description

Now in a fully revised and expanded second edition, this unique handbook presents virtually all that is currently known about eating disorders and obesity in one authoritative and readily accessible volume. From leading international authorities, 112 concise chapters encapsulate the latest information on all pertinent topics, from biological, psychological, and social processes associated with risk, to clinical methods for measurement and intervention. Updated throughout to reflect recent developments in theory, research, and practice, the second edition has been reorganized to highlight areas of overlap and encourage communication between the two fields. Among the array of new topics covered are molecular genetics, the role of leptin in regulating body weight, binge eating disorder, obesity and social discrimination, and the use of self-help books and the internet in the treatment of eating disorders.
