Clinical handbook of complex and atypical eating disorders by Leslie K Anderson( )

10 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Treating patients with eating disorders (ED) is a notoriously challenging undertaking. Patients tend to be medically compromised and have a deep ambivalence towards their symptoms, and treatment dropout and relapse rates are high. Further complicating matters, a sizable number of patients present with additional characteristics that set them apart from the patients for whom empirically supported treatments were developed. Up to 50% of current ED diagnoses are classified as atypical and do not fit into existing diagnostic categories, and many more present with complex comorbidities. <em>Clinical Handbook of Complex and Atypical Eating Disorders </em>brings together into one comprehensive resource what is known about an array of complicating factors for patients with ED, serving as an accessible introduction to each of the comorbidities and symptom presentations highlighted in the volume. The first section of the book focuses on the treatment of ED in the presence of various comorbidities, and the second section explores the treatment of ED with atypical symptom presentations. The third section focuses on how to adapt ED treatments for diverse populations typically neglected in controlled treatment trials: LGBT, pediatric, male, ethnically diverse, and older adult populations. Each chapter includes a review of clinical presentation, prevalence, treatment approaches, resources, conclusions, and future directions. Cutting edge and practical, <em>Clinical Handbook of Complex</em> <em>and Atypical Eating Disorders </em>will appeal to researchers and health professionals involved in treating ED"--Provided by publisher
Innovations in family therapy for eating disorders : novel treatment developments, patient insights, and the role of carers by Stuart Murray( )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Innovations in Family Therapy for Eating Disorders brings together the voices of the most-esteemed, international experts to present conceptual advances, preliminary data, and patient perspectives on family-based treatments for eating disorders. This innovative volume is based partly on a special issue of Eating Disorders: The Journal of Treatment and Prevention and includes a section on the needs of carers and couples, "Tales from the Trenches," and qualitative studies of patient, parent, and carer experiences. Cutting edge and practical, this compendium will appeal to clinicians and researchers involved in the treatment of eating disorders
Anabolic steroid use among gay and bisexual men living in Australia and New Zealand: Associations with demographics, body dissatisfaction, eating disorder psychopathology, and quality of life( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Highlights: The prevalence of anabolic androgenic steroid (AAS) use was 5.2%. The prevalence of thinking about using AAS was 25.4%. Non-Australian/New Zealander men were more likely to use AAS (7.0% vs. 4.2%). Eating disorder psychopathology was associated with AAS use. Body image and eating disorder psychopathology were associated with AAS thoughts. Abstract: Background and aims: Gay and bisexual men may be at heightened risk for using anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS). Few studies, however, have examined AAS use among gay and bisexual men living in countries outside the United States. In addition, few studies have explored the potential associations of AAS use with body image concerns beyond muscularity, including height and genitals, or with eating disorder symptoms and quality of life. Thus, we examined the associations of AAS use, and of thoughts about using AAS, with body image, eating disorder symptoms, and quality of life among gay and bisexual men living in Australia and New Zealand. Methods: A sample of 2733 gay and bisexual men completed an online survey promoted by paid nationwide advertisements to users of geosocial-networking smartphone applications. Results: The prevalence of AAS use, and of thoughts about using AAS, were 5.2% (95% confidence interval [CI]: 4.4%, 6.1%) and 25.4% (95% CI: 23.8%, 27.1%), respectively. Multivariate analyses revealed that more frequent thoughts about using AAS were associated with being older, taller, and experiencing greater dissatisfaction with muscularity and height, less dissatisfaction with body fat, greater eating disorder symptoms, and lower subjective quality of life. Actual AAS users were more likely to be older, from a non-Australian/New Zealander cultural background, experiencing less dissatisfaction with body fat, and experiencing greater eating disorder symptoms. Conclusions: Psychopathology related to body image and eating disorders are associated with AAS use among gay and bisexual men living in Australia and New Zealand
Pornography use in sexual minority males: Associations with body dissatisfaction, eating disorder symptoms, thoughts about using anabolic steroids and quality of life( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Objective: We examined two hypotheses regarding the potential association of pornography use with body image–related and eating disorder–related psychopathology among sexual minority males (i.e. non-heterosexual males). Our primary hypothesis was that pornography use would be associated with males’ body dissatisfaction, eating disorder symptoms, thoughts about using anabolic steroids and quality of life impairment; our secondary hypothesis was that the type of pornography, namely, professional versus amateur pornography, which contains idealised and non-idealised (i.e. regular) bodies, respectively, would moderate these associations. Methods: A sample of 2733 sexual minority males living in Australia and New Zealand completed an online survey that contained measures of pornography use, body dissatisfaction, eating disorder symptoms, thoughts about using anabolic steroids and quality of life. Results: Almost all (98.2%) participants reported pornography use with a median use of 5.33 hours per month. Multivariate analyses revealed that increased pornography use was associated with greater dissatisfaction with muscularity, body fat and height; greater eating disorder symptoms; more frequent thoughts about using anabolic steroids; and lower quality of life. Effect sizes for these associations were uniformly small. Neither relationship status nor genital dissatisfaction was associated with pornography use. The association between pornography use and thoughts about using anabolic steroids was stronger for viewers of professional pornography than viewers of amateur pornography. Conclusion: The findings suggest that the use of pornography is weakly associated with body dissatisfaction and related variables and that the type of pornography (amateur vs professional) viewed may be a moderating factor in some cases. Within the limits of a cross-sectional study design, these findings may have implications for clinicians who treat individuals with eating disorders, body dysmorphic disorder, anabolic-androgenic steroid dependence and related concerns
Adolescent muscle dysmorphia and family-based treatment: A case report( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A growing body of evidence suggests that the prevalence of male body dissatisfaction and muscle dysmorphia is rising. To date, however, there is no published evidence on the efficacy of treatments for muscle dysmorphia. We present the case of a 15-year-old boy who met full diagnostic criteria for muscle dysmorphia, whose symptoms were treated into remission with eating disorder-focused, family-based treatment. The age of this patient fell within the time period in which symptoms of muscle dysmorphia are most likely to develop and this case represents the first published case report of family-based treatment for muscle dysmorphia in this age group. Thus, this case report has important implications for clinicians considering treatment options for presentations of muscle dysmorphia when first presenting in adolescence. Implications for the development of treatment guidelines for muscle dysmorphia and for the diagnostic debate surrounding muscle dysmorphia are also discussed
Facilitating research on eating disorders stigma: validation of the internalised stigma of mental illness scale for use in people with eating disorders( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

ABSTRACT: Stigma internalisation in people with eating disorders is an area of increasing scientific interest. To date, however, no measure of stigma internalisation has been validated for use in people with eating disorders, which may help explain the paucity of research investigating stigma in this population. We conducted a confirmatory factor analysis of the 29-item Internalised Stigma of Mental Illness Scale (ISMI) in a sample of 331 individuals with various eating disorders, and further examined its concurrent predictive validity and convergent validity. The original factor structure of the ISMI indicated poor fit. Five modifications were made; one item was excluded, three items had their factor loadings moved to a different subscale, and the co-variance between two items was modelled. The modified ISMI indicated good fit and exhibited evidence of concurrent predictive validity and convergent validity. The ISMI is valid for use in people with eating disorders with minimal changes to subscale scoring. Although relatively few changes to the ISMI were proposed, the capacity to compare ISMI scores across patient populations should be weighed against obtaining empirically and theoretically defensible factor structures that may be population-specific
