Anti-fat prejudice and weight bias: Weight related issues in Introductory Psychology texts

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Previous research indicated that psychology failed to address fat prejudice in textbooks, continuing to subscribe to a medicalized view of obesity, and failing to present empirical evidence that dieting is ineffective. A replication of a textbook review conducted in 2000 is presented. Limited improvement in weight related content is noted.
