Living with Your Looks by Roberta Honigman
Book DescriptionThis is a topical and comprehensive release looking at the social, cultural and historical influences which effect the way people view their bodies and how concerns about body image can give rise to a range of body image disorders. It surveys the processes by which how a person views their body can become so distorted that their obsession(s) manifest themselves as a psychiatric disorder. It counters any preconceived notions that these issues are limited to women. As the book demonstrates, muscle dysmorphia (the belief that one is too small or puny) is as prevalent among men as bulimia and anorexia are amongst women. It includes chapters on: The 'Looks Heritage' (an historical background); Changing Our Looks: Tattoos, Body Piercing and Plastic Surgery; Weight and Shape: Fat and Thin (looks at Anorexia and Bulimia); Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD): General Considerations Treatment of BDD; Skin Picking and Hair Pulling: Recognition and Treatment; and Living With Our Looks. Given its subject matter and lively and accessible style, "Living With Your Looks" is likely to arouse considerable national media interest.
