Over the past fifty years, eating disorders have progressively become the subject of increasingly large and complex research studies. Starting from studies on epidemiology, clinical characteristics, risk factors, parental relationships, comorbidities, importance of body image and shape, and preventive interventions have been promoted and tested and the effectiveness of some therapeutic interventions has been evaluated.
This Special Issue aims to collect original empirical and theoretical studies that are not limited to the main research areas covered so far, but on the developments and effects that EDS have on social and economic life, on intrapsychic and relational aspects, on youth movements, and on the relevant changes affecting nutrition and the environment. In particular, we aim to collect papers on every aspect related to ED and not only on clinical aspects; articles proposed on the relationship between ED and current events (e.g. COVID-19, migration, politics, environment, etc.) will be preferred, on topics including:
- ED and impact on social and/or economic life;
- ED and the body (fashion, body image, other body symptoms such as self-injurious behaviors, body dysmorphic disorder, and so on);
- ED and sexuality;
- ED family;
- Prevention program;
- ED and technologies;
- ED on the web;
- ED and femininity;
- ED and adolescence;
- ED epidemiology among migrants;
- ED and asceticism.
