The Oxford Handbook of Eating Disorders provides current insights from established experts into the phenomenology, epidemiology, prevention, and treatment of eating disorders. Fully revised to reflect new DSM-5 classification and diagnostic criteria, each chapter of the Second Edition has been updated to feature the latest clinical research findings, applications, and approaches to understanding eating disorders. An additional chapter on emerging issues explores critical questions pertaining to ethics and the use of technology in treating eating disorders. With information on newly documented syndromes and a new section on bariatric surgery, this handbook not only encapsulates where the field is at but also offers astute perspectives on how the field is changing. Including both practical specifics, like literature reviews and clinical applications, as well as a broad view of foundational topics, this handbook is essential for scientists, clinicians, experts, and students alike.

Meditation techniques, including mindfulness, have become popular wellbeing practices and the scientific study of their effects has recently turned 50 years old. But how much do we know about them: what were they developed for and by whom? How similar or different are they, how effective can they be in changing our minds and biology, what are their social and ethical implications? The Oxford Handbook of Meditation is the most comprehensive volume published on meditation, written in accessible language by world-leading experts on the science and history of these techniques. It covers the development of meditation across the world and the varieties of its practices and experiences. It includes approaches from various disciplines, including psychology, neuroscience, history, anthropology, and sociology and it explores its potential for therapeutic and social change, as well as unusual or negative effects. Edited by practitioner-researchers, this book is the ultimate guide for all interested in meditation, including teachers, clinicians, therapists, researchers, or anyone who would like to learn more about this topic.

This text is designed to help teachers and service providers work successfully with children who exhibit emotional and behavioral disorders by affording them a repertoire of valuable, evidence-based treatment strategies. Furthermore, because the book represents a synthesis of expertise, written from the dual perspectives of an experienced clinician and an educator, the school professional who reads it will better understand the role of both teacher and service provider, thus optimizing the coordination and effectiveness of the services that are critical to the success of these students. ‘Working with Students with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders: A Guide for K-12 Teachers and Service Providers’ explores the most prevalent behavioral disorders encountered by school professionals as they work with today’s students. These high-incidence behavioral disorders are addressed by type, and each includes a discussion of the relevant characteristics, causes, prevalence, and treatment strategies. Features that are unique to this book include its acknowledgement of the need for a collaborative approach to these problems by all school professionals, as well as the coordination of services provided by the classroom teacher and other service providers working with these students. To date, few books, if any, have provided this holistic perspective. This book is designed to help K-12 teachers and related service providers (i.e., school psychologists, school social workers, speech-language pathologists, guidance counselors, and occupational therapists) work successfully with children who exhibit emotional and behavioral disorders by affording them a repertoire of valuable, evidence-based treatment strategies.

Psychobiological correlates of eating behaviour in middle aged women

Psychobiological correlates of eating behaviour in middle aged women

Restrained eating and risk of gaining weight and body fat in middle-aged women: a 3-year prospective study. ... “Mood, emotions and eating disorders,” in Oxford Handbook of Eating Disorders. Series: Oxford Library of Psychology, ed.

The aim of this thesis is to determine selected psychobiological aspects of eating behavior in middle-aged women. For this purpose, two studies were conducted. In the first study, the association between menopausal status, self-esteem and restrained eating in middle-aged women was examined. Postmenopausal women showed higher scores in restrained eating than premenopausal women. Further analyses indicate a U-shaped relationship between self-esteem and restrained eating. Self-esteem serves as a mediator between menopausal status and restrained eating. These results suggest that restrained eating could be a more widespread phenomenon in middle-aged women than generally believed. In the second study, the relationship between menopausal status, estrogen, prior history of anorexia nervosa and postprandial ghrelin levels in middle-aged women was investigated. The results show an interaction effect between menopausal status, estrogen and postprandial ghrelin levels. The area under the curve for ghrelin was increased in participants with prior history of anorexia nervosa compared to participants without prior history of anorexia nervosa. In general, the results of this thesis suggest that it can be hypothesized that menopausal transition may represent a window of vulnerability to eating-related changes.
