thesisposted on 2005-01-01, 00:00 authored by Sasha L. Gardiner-Crossley
This thesis focused on the impact of disordered eating and obesity, and found that people with better self-esteem and personal control experience greater satisfaction with their lives overall. Although people reporting disordered eating reported lower self-esteem and obese people were less satisfied with their health, overall life satisfaction was maintained. The portfolio examined the Scientist-Practitioner Model (S-P) of psychology whereby practitioners perform dual roles as clinician and researcher. The clinical utility of the S-P model was then evaluated in four case studies.
