As a psychologist, and after years of study, I wanted to create books from the material I have gathered over the years to make available to the public. My books, beginning with my first book - STRESS, We Can Master It- are laid out in a way that everyone can understand. Psychological theories, definitions, analysis can be rather daunting for those who are not involved in this particular field. Knowing this, I tried to simplify, to a point, as best I could this material to make it readable and comprehensible to the everyday person. I am sure whoever would read this book will gain a little something that can help them in some way. You will read in this fourth book in my series: Introduction The Psychological Concept of Beauty Media and Beauty Body Dissatisfaction and Eating Disorders Socio-Cultural Issues Historical and Cultural Differences Concerning Eating Disorders Anorexia Nervosa Bulimia Nervosa The Effects of Media Exposure and the 'Appearance Schema' on Women's Self-Esteem New Findings What we Can Conclude Reading the book you will likely obtain a helpful insight in to the concept of body image and discover things you did not know which could either help you or someone you know.
