The Hidden Faces of Eating Disorders and Body Image strives to obliterate stereotypes that suggest only young, White affluent females have eating disorders. Research about body image and eating disturbances across social categories is reported and case illustrations are presented. This book seeks to explore diverse populations to better understand the person behind the stereotypical group. Studies that provide a wider representation of gender, social class, race/ethnicity, religion and other social categories are provided within these chapters so that the reader can better understand the complexity associated with helping diverse populations. A clinical perspective is offered for dealing with clients who fit a particular social category, so that helping professionals can demonstrate cultural sensitivity about a group's unique concerns. Strategies for assessment, treatment and prevention are offered for serving diverse clients including:* Athletes
* Compulsive Overexercisers
* Males
