Summary After a decade of intense research, it is clear that body image plays a critical role in the etiology, development, and treatment of eating disorders and obesity. Body Image, Eating Disorders, and Obesity integrates these findings on body image with empirically supported assessment and intervention guidelines for anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, and obesity. In addition, body image issues are explored in other important areas such as cosmetic plastic surgery and body dimorphic disorder.
