Eating disorders is considered as a well researched area. Although, an increasing number of mental health clinicians are becoming better equipped in recognising eating disorders in individuals, specialist eating disorder services still underrepresent various groups. This doctoral thesis examines two of those groups specifically, men and ethnic minorities, in particular for the latter, South Asian women and eating disorders. The first paper reviews published research and examines the link between eating disorders in men and gender differences. It specifically focuses on the factors, which are argued to have a causal link to the development and maintenance of eating disorders in men. It further examines the validity and reliability of eating disorder research in this area and explores the implications for clinical practice. The second paper presents an empirical study exploring the development and experiences of eating disorders in South Asian women including a comparative analysis with Caucasian women. The final paper provides a reflective account of my journey in carrying out this research.
