About the book

image4.0/5.0

"Understanding Eating Disorders is the first full philosophical study of ethical issues in the treatment of anorexia and bulimia nervosa. Beginning with a comprehensive analysis of these conditions and an exploration of their complex causes, Simona Giordano proceeds to address legal and ethical dilemmas such as a patient's refusal of life-saving treatment. She offers an up-to-date, critical account of the literature on clinical, genetic, biological, and neuro-physiological factors involved in eating disorders, which provides a framework for her own argument: that anorexia and bulimia are not symptoms of mental disorder, and that effective treatment lies not in coercive intervention but in a critical examination of Western culture." "Illustrated with many case-studies, Understanding Eating Disorders is an essential tool for anyone working with sufferers of these much misunderstood conditions, and for all those ethicists, lawyers, and medical practitioners engaged with the issues they raise."--BOOK JACKET.
