Assignment 2: Eating Disorders

Biological causal factors of anorexia nervosa include genetic predisposition, serotonin regulation, and physiologic weight set points. Given the prevalence of this disorder, it seems unlikely that biological causes alone could account for it.
Research eating disorders using your textbook and the Argosy University online library resources. Based on your research, respond to the following:

  • Comment on the relative strengths of biological causes compared to sociological or individual causes. Consider the types of anorexia nervosa in your argument. 
  • Explain any treatment strategies that would support your argument. 
  • Does obesity share anything in common with anorexia nervosa? Consider obesity causal factors and whether obesity is truly a mental disorder. 

Write your initial response in 3–4 paragraphs. If you refer to research information, cite sources applying APA standards.

By Sunday, March 1, 2015, post your response to the appropriate Discussion Area.Through Wednesday, March 4, 2015, review and comment on at least two peers' responses.

Hi Class,

Module 5 explores the Eating Disorders, Substance Related Disorders and Sexual Dysfunction & Variants.

According to Kelsey, et al., 2006), Anorexia Nervosa (AN), Bulimia Nervosa (BN), and Binge Eating Disorder actually share some features in common. All involve a preoccupation with weight; Anorexia always involves dieting/fasting, while the other two usually do. Anorexia always involves body image distortion, and the other two sometimes do. One major difference is actual body weight, which is decreased with AN, normal with BN, and increased with Binge-Eating Disorder.
