Gender and Feeding and Eating Disorders Homework 5

Baring her naked, 60-pound figure, French model Isabella Caro posed for a series of advertisements warning of the dangers of eating disorders. Suffering from Anorexia Nervosa, Caro’s photos captured the grim physical and mental effects of the eating disorder. Her gaunt frame and vacant, hopeless stare conveyed the life of many who suffer from the disorder (Grimes, 2010). Typically, eating disorders are categorized by a persistent disturbance in eating and eating-related behaviors.

For this Discussion, consider the eating behaviors of the client in the case study. Think about how an individual’s control of eating habits becomes an abnormality in eating behavior.

With these thoughts in mind:

Post by Day 4 a diagnosis for the male client in the case study and explain your rationale for assigning these diagnoses on the basis of the DSM. Then explain how gender and culture impact the presentation of an eating disorder. Be specific.

Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources and current literature.
