Book Description :

This book takes a novel approach to the study of male eating disorders – an area that is often dominated by clinical discourses. The study of eating disorders in men has purportedly suffered from a lack of dedicated attention to personal and socio-cultural aspects. Delderfield tackles this deficiency by spotlighting a set of personal accounts written by a group of men who have experiences of disordered eating. The text presents critical interpretations that aim to situate these experiences in the social and cultural context in which these disorders occur. This discursive work is underpinned by an eclectic scholarly engagement with social psychology and sociology literature around masculinities, embodiment and fatness, belonging, punishment, stigma, and control; leading to understandings about relationships with food, body and self. This is undertaken with a reflexive element, as the personal intersects with the professional. This text will appeal to students, scholars and clinicians in social sciences, humanities, and healthcare studies, including public health.

Book Description :

Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject Psychology - Clinic and Health Psychology, Abnormal Psychology, Atlantic International University, language: English, abstract: It is generally accepted that eating disorders are a serious concern among women but we are faced with a severe lack of research into the prevalence of men struggling with their body image. Sadly, many doctors still do not recognize cases of eating disorders in men with the result that fewer than 5% of all referrals to specialist eating disorder clinics are male (Morgan: 2008). Pollack (1999) discovered that at Harvard Medical School, there is increasing evidence that many men (and probably boys too) are becoming increasingly obsessed with their bodies. Men are beginning to diet in unprecedented numbers with an estimated one million of them suffering from eating disorders (Luciano: 2002). This figure of one million is perceived to be understated as males with eating disorders are for too often under diagnosed. Andersen et al. (2000) confirms that eating disorders in males has been overlooked and in some treatment centres, the ratio of men to women has changed over the past ten years from almost entirely women to 50:50. In Psychology Today magazine in 1997, an amazing 43%, nearly half of the men in the survey reported that they were dissatisfied with their overall appearance. Of those men surveyed, 63% were dissatisfied with their abdomen, 52% with their weight, 55% with their muscle tone and 38% with their chest (Pope et al: 2000). There does not seem to be a specific age at which men develop eating disorders, with sufferers as young as eight years old and eating disorders usually appearing around 14-25 years of age (B-eat). Children as young as two years old have already developed damaging eating habits, this can lead to eating disorders as the child ages, with 52,17% of eating disorders persisting into adulthood (Sancho et al: 2007). Morgan (2008) explains that eating disorders and body image problems develop slowly and subtly, but once you start to use eating habits and exercise as a means of dealing with distressing emotions, then there may be a problem. In a Brief History of Eating Disorders (2009) we find that after puberty, one million boys and men will have eating disorders; this coupled with Paterson’s statement that ‘on average, it seems to be approximately six years before men [or boys] will seek help’...

Book Description :

Females make up the greater percentage of those affected by eating disorders; however, males are not immune to the disorder. Males can also fall victim to Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa and Compulsive Overeating. Eating disorders are not caused by a single known cause. In fact, the majority of those individuals struggling with this disorder have developed it after numerous factors paved the way. These issues surrounding weight, diet and body image can prove highly dangerous to the physical and mental health of an individual. Because poor body image is at the core of those struggling with eating disorders, it is no surprise that this disorder is associated with depression. The treatments success is proportional to the timing of problem diagnosis. The more time that elapses where harmful habits have developed and become routine, the greater the difficulty to break the unhealthy patterns. Eating disorders are responsible for tremendous damage to both the body and mind, thus the greater the amount of time it is left untreated the greater the danger. If you feel that you or a loved one may be struggling with an eating disorder, it is imperative to seek immediate attention. This book will give the reader further insight into this female and male issue. From what an eating disorder is to where it stems from, pregnancy concerns and treatment; this book will not only inform but offer helpful insight for professional help.

The National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders states that approximately eight million people in the U.S. have anorexia nervosa, bulimia, and related eating disorders. This population includes both females and males, but as one essayist states in this book, for males with eating disorders, finding treatment can be difficult. Another essayist, Carrie Arnold, asks and answers the question of whether anorexia is a cultural disease. The National Institute of Mental Health essay provides a complete introduction and overview of eating disorders. Readers will also evaluate what factors contribute to eating disorders, and treatment and recovery issues.

Book Description :

[Abstract] This research study investigated the question, "What is the experience of males with eating disorders?" The aim of this study was to explore the essence of the male's experience. In doing so, the Phenomenological Research Model of qualitative research was implemented. Twelve adult males who fit the DSM IV-TR criteria for Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, and Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified were interviewed. The data were analyzed using interpretative phenomenological analysis to highlight both the commonality and diversity of the participants' experience. The five major themes that emerged from the data and were discussed in this research include: parental unavailability, distress and dissociation, alienation, distorted body image, and sense of shame. This study explored the textural and structural aspects of this phenomenon, followed by a synthesis of both elements. This research also addressed implications and applications for educators and psychologists, and recommendations for future research.

Book Description :

Boys and men with eating disorders remain a population that is under-recognized and underserved within both research and clinical contexts. It has been well documented that boys and men with eating disorders often exhibit distinct clinical presentations with regard to core cognitive (e.g., body image) and behavioral (e.g., pathological exercise) symptoms. Such differences, along with the greater likelihood of muscularity-oriented disordered eating among boys and men, emphasize the importance of understanding and recognizing unique factors of clinical relevance within this population. This book reviews the most up-to-date research findings on eating disorders among boys and men, with an emphasis on clinically salient information across multiple domains. Five sections are included, with the first focused on a historical overview and the unique nature and prevalence of specific forms of eating disorder symptoms and body image concerns in boys and men. The second section details population-specific considerations for the diagnosis and assessment of eating disorders, body image concerns, and muscle dysmorphia in boys and men. The third section identifies unique concerns regarding medical complications and care in this population, including medical complications of appearance and performance-enhancing substances. The fourth section reviews current findings and considerations for eating disorder prevention and intervention for boys and men. The fifth section of the book focuses on specific populations (e.g., sexual minorities, gender minorities) and addresses sociocultural factors of particular relevance for eating disorders in boys and men (e.g., racial and ethnic considerations, cross-cultural considerations). The book then concludes with a concise overview of key takeaways and a focused summary of current evidence gaps and unanswered questions, as well as directions for future research. Written by experts in the field, Eating Disorders in Boys and Men is a comprehensive guide to an under-reported topic. It is an excellent resource for primary care physicians, adolescent medicine physicians, pediatricians, psychologists, clinical social workers, and any other professional conducting research with or providing clinical care for boys and men with eating disorders. It is also an excellent resource for students, residents, fellows, and trainees across various disciplines.

Eating disorders in males are a complex phenomenon. Eating disorders are less common in males than in females, occurring generally 10 times more frequently in women than in men. In spite of similar symptoms in men and women, men are less likely to be primarily diagnosed as suffering from an eating disorder and they risk to be under-diagnosed. This new and unique book reviews research on the epidemiology, clinical features, risk factors, weight and shape concerns, body dissatisfaction and a particular male anxiety on muscle mass on the topic of eating disorders in males.

Book Description :

The ABC of Eating Disorders is a comprehensive primer for GPs, dieticians, psychiatrists and community health teams who need to incorporate a sophisticated awareness of this field into their professional practice. It spans, and differentiates, eating and feeding disorders from diagnosis to their management and treatment. With a focus on primary care, this ABC touches on the medico-legal aspects and ethical issues of treating eating disorders and specialist referral. This new title in the successful ABC series describes working with families, children and other specialist populations, such as the elderly, men and minority groups. It helps primary care practitioners recognise eating disorders in people presenting with other problems, while the section on comorbidity discusses the treatment of eating disorders existing with other conditions. The ABC of Eating Disorders is accessible - sufferers will find it provides a useful background to self help materials, and their lay carers will be able to appreciate its intelligent and compassionate approach.
