This edition is no longer for sale. However, an updated edition is available.
Body Image, Eating Disorders and Obesity in Youth: Assessment, Prevention, and Treatment examines the relationship between body image disturbances and eating disorders in our most vulnerable population: children and adolescents. Volume editors J. Kevin Thompson and Linda Smolak present a dynamic approach that combines current research, assessment techniques, and suggestions for treatment and prevention. Contributing authors offer techniques for treating obesity and eating disorders in children, point to possible sources of these disorders, map out the subtleties of working with youth of diverse ethnicities, and elucidate the connections between sexual abuse and body image. This volume delivers valuable direction for researchers in the field as well as solid guidance for practitioners and clinicians working with young clients suffering from these disorders and should be considered requisite reading.
