The term ‘eating disorders’ now encompasses much more than just anorexia and bulimia. Eating Disorders Not Otherwise Specified, orthorexia and even protorexia are become more and more talked about. This book explores all of these forms of problem eating, as well as potential treatments. It also looks at topical issues such as the dangers behind the clean eating craze and whether, in fact, this encourages the development of eating disorders among vulnerable people.
The information inside comes from a variety of sources, including newspapers, magazines, government reports and charity groups; providing different perspectives on challenging topics. At the end of the book is a selection of activities that will encourage interaction, literacy, critical thinking and independent research. Content is accessible and engaging, tailored primarily towards the 14 to 18 age group.
