Once used exclusively by bodybuilders other athletes, steroids are now primarily consumed by men who want to look better. Steroids and the Growing Crisis of Male Body Image aims to introduce laypeople, clinicians, and academics to a better and more modern understanding of steroids and the men who use them. This informative new resource discusses the history of steroids, the stigma and stereotypes surrounding use, the role of steroids in the realm of eating disorder behavior, muscle dysmorphia, connections between steroid use and masculinity, as well as ideas for clinical and population-level interventions to help body dissatisfied men who are or have considered using steroids.
