Prevention of Eating Disorders

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

    Abstract

    Prevention of eating disorders in youth represents an intuitively and objectively worthy endeavor, resulting in a proliferation of public health. approaches, most of which have no evidence base. Indeed, some are associated with evidence showing ineffectiveness.Unfortunately, this lack of evidence base has not impeded dissemination of ineffective approaches. However, there is cause for optimism because evidence that has accumulated over the last 15 years supports a handful of promising directions in the prevention of eating disorders. This chapter provides an overview of these approaches.
