About this Lecture

Lecture

In this module, we turn our attention to eating disorders, startign with the causes anorexia nervosa. First, we discuss how anorexia is defined and how commonly this disorder is found in women and men. We then think about how anorexia manifests in the behaviour of those suffering from the disorder and what consequences it has for their mental and physical health. Finally, we consider four different theories concerning the onset of anorexia: (i) the psychoanalytic model, (ii) the cognitive-behavioural model, (iii) the family systems model and (iv) the socio-cultural model.

Course

In this course, Professor Jane Ogden (University of Surrey) discusses eating behaviour and its related problems. We begin by exploring why we eat what we eat, focussing on cognitive and developmental models of food preferences in module one and the Weight Concern Model in module two. We then think about eating disorders, exploring the causes of anorexia in module three and obesity in module four. Finally, modules five and six consider available treatments for these disorders.
