Ethics of Mental Health Care: Anorexia Term Paper

… The health care provider takes the responsibility of eliciting preceding cognitions then challenges them in an intellectual manner without taking a forceful position. This proves helpful as it enhances behavior change through the provision of practical ideas and experiences to the patient (Isserlin, Leanna, and Jennifer 29).

Embracing psychodynamic approaches help the health care providers address the needs of an anorexic patient efficiently. The approach examines factors, which might have contributed to the condition. The strategy teases the patients the adaptive roles of the anorexia to develop alternative strategies and paradigms to facilitate recovery from the condition.

Anorexia Criteria for Diagnosis Physical Term Paper

… Society has to accept much of the blame for the population of anorexia sufferers. Society has labeled the image of the 6ft, size 6-8 model as the ideal, which the majority of normal women do not comply with. Not only is this image being promoted (through the media) as the ideal in aesthetic terms, it is also associated with success (professionally and personally), happiness and good fortune. But then, it is the individuals that make up society, so we are also to blame for this situation. If society did not find such a ready market for promoting unrealistic images of the body beautiful, then society would not be promoting it.

… Anorexia: A Comparison of Two Studies

Eating disorders like anorexia have been researched at length, but with varying results. I have chosen to examine how research on anorexia compares between an experimental study and a case study. The two articles I have chosen to examine are: 1) "Emotional Responses to Food in Adults With an Eating Disorder: A Qualitative Investigation" by McNamara, Chur-Hansen and Hay (experimental study); and 2) "Case Study: Eating Disorder in a 10-year-old Girl" by Scharer (case study).

In a qualitative, experimental study, McNamara, Chur-Hansen and Hay (2008) sought to determine a common theme in adult women with eating disorders. They interviewed ten women clinically diagnosed with anorexia nervosa, bulimia or an eating disorder not otherwise specified (EDNOS) while showing them slides…. [read more]

Developmental Psychology Body Image Term Paper

… Several psychiatric disorders might lead to increasing risk of eating disorder, including neurotic and depressive symptoms, bipolar disorder, manic depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive personality characteristics, history of sexual abuse, severe family problems, extreme social pressures, insecurity, being controlled by others, distorted body image, etc. (NIMH, 2001). In addition, extreme negative dissatisfaction with their bodies may be a factor in its existence, even though not a predictor of eating disorders (Leon, Fulkerson, Perry, & Cudeck, 1993).

According to Johnson, Cohen, Kotler, Kasen, & Brook (2002), teenagers diagnosed with depression might be at a higher risk for the onset of eating disorders during middle adolescence and early adulthood, because eating disorders and depression in children and adolescents are closely related. Nevertheless, disruptive disorders might also contribute to recurrent…. [read more]

Eating Disorder Is Characterized Research Paper

… The client comes into the counseling system either by voluntarily enrolling themselves in counseling, through a friend or family referral or expert advice at a health facility.
