Eating Disorders

Eating disorders are categorised by abnormal eating habits that involve either insufficient or excessive food intake to the extent that physical and emotional health is adversely affected. Eating disorders include anorexia nervosa and bulimia, and are commonly associated with women, although an increasing number of men are reported to suffer from eating disorders, too.

Diagnosis and treatment involves examining the underlying medical, environmental and psychological causes and working out a therapeutic treatment plan to address these causes. The Eating Disorder Inventory 3rd Edition (EDI-3) is a self-report measure that provides the clinician with the psychological traits and constructs shown to be clinically relevant to individuals with eating disorders.
