Diagnosis, Engagement, and Alliance book
In this chapter, we consider the nuances of assessment and diagnosis that arise with men and boys who exhibit disturbances in eating, weight, and shape, including the rapidly evolving diagnostic definitions of eating disorders in the DSM-5. We consider the recent changes that have taken place in the diagnostic criteria for anorexia nervosa. Throughout the discussion, we emphasize the issues that arise in the process of assessment and diagnosis for men and boys in particular.
