“Eating Disorder as Social Pathology- A skinny Oriented Culture Surrounding Young People”
【Overview】Considering eating disorder as a sort of social pathology, analyze and examine the process of how a skinny-oriented culture leads to increase of eating disorder. And discuss how we can stop this and further issues.(In addition to a doctoral thesis submitted to the University of Sacred Heart in 2004)
It is essential for all the professionals involved in children, not limited to children’s psychotherapists, to understand the phenomena of this social pathology that can be seen among children, whose mental health is influenced heavily by society.
