Psychological Theory Seeks to Define Obesity.
Burgard, Debby
Obesity & Health, v7 n2 p25-27,37 Mar-Apr 1993
Examines various psychodynamic and behavioral theories in a discussion about obesity and mental health. It is revealed that modern theory finds no identifiable personality profile, behavior, or family structure influencing large weight gain thus discounting psychopathology as the cause of obesity. Individual assessments for causes of obesity are recommended. (GLR)
