Too Fat or Too Thin?: A Reference Guide to Eating Disorders
By Cynthia R Kalodner

The deluge of information regarding eating disorders can be mystifying and misleading. It's often difficult knowing where to begin and who to trust. This practical resource guide for students and parents dispels the myths surrounding eating disorders by providing factual and historical information on how our understanding of theses problems has evolved. Chapters on anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, compulsive overeating, and other disorders use case studies and current research to describe and explain symptoms, dangers and current theories about what causes such disorders.

Medical and psychological issues are thoroughly discussed in a manner accessible for students. Psychological therapies and other forms of treatment are described, providing each treatment's history and effectiveness. Other chapters focus on the prevention of eating problems, the relationship between image disturbances and popular culture and controversies in the field of diagnosis and treatment.
