Pursuing Perfection: Eating Disorders, Body Myths and Women at Midlife and Beyond


Product Description

Published USA, 2016
The number of women over the age of 30 who are reporting to treatment programs with seriously disordered eating or body image problems is increasing. Perfectionism comes with a hefty price tag, eating away at our emotional and physical wellbeing. This book by two American researchers approaches the topic from a biopsychosocial and feminist perspective. The book describes the many issues women encounter as they navigate a rapidly changing culture that promotes unhealthy standards for beauty and appearance. It has concrete strategies to address problems such as yo-yo dieting, problem eating and body image distress that sap sustenance from adult women and distort their lives.
