Available prevalence data indicate that disordered eating and clinical eating disorders are a significant problem for many athletes. Because athletes face the same general risk factors as non-athletes, as well as risks unique to the sport environment, athletes could be considered a more at risk group than non-athletes. As a consequence, athletes comprise a very special subpopulation of eating disorder patients in need of specialized approaches to identification, management, treatment, and prevention.

Eating Disorders in Sport brings the field up to date while continuing to look to the next frontier in identification, prevention, treatment, and management of EDs in the sports world. The authors begin by identifying and marrying together the two worlds sport studies/sport psychology and eating disorders prevention/treatment. Following is a series of chapters that present the various forms of clinical eating disorders, current literature on research and prevalence data, and risk factors in both general and sport-related populations. The core of the volume then describes Identification, Management, Treatment, Prevention and Medical Considerations.
