Obesity and Mental Disorders
edited by Susan L. McElroy

Obesity and Mental Disorders fills the gap in the literature by providing a clear overview of obesity and its relationship to mental illness while reviewing the most recent methods to manage and control the condition with diet, exercise, psychological treatments, pharmacotherapy, and surgery.

Features:

  • Studies the occurrence of obesity in combination with psychotic, depressive, bipolar, eating, and impulsive/compulsive disorders
  • Clearly outlines the epidemiology, etiology, genetics, and general medical comorbidity and mortality of obesity
  • Summarizes the most current literature and research on the treatment of four key subtypes of obesity: obesity without psychopathology, obesity with psychotic disorders, obesity with mood disorders, and obesity with eating disorders
  • Discusses the role of bariatric surgery in the treatment of obesity, including the obese patient with psychopathology
  • Analyzes dietary therapy, exercise, behavioral management, and specialized psychotherapies in the treatment of obesity-both with and without psychopathology
  • Examines pharmacologic agents used in the treatment of three separate conditions: obesity, binge eating, and medication-induced weight gain
