What are the factors that predispose someone to disordered eating habits? Background: In psychology, learning theory refers to how we acquire basic responses and behaviors. Three different types of learning: learning through association (classical conditioning), learning through reward or punishment (operant conditioning), and learning through imitation (observational learning).
Learning theory is explored primarily through the Behavioral perspective, which emphasizes how the environment shapes who we are and how we behave.
Provide an original example from your own life history of Classical Conditioning. Your example should provide enough specific detail to illustrate the concept. Explain how each of the five key terms listed below may apply to your example. Unconditioned Stimulus, Unconditioned Response. Neutral Stimulus, Conditioned Response, Conditioned Stimulus.

Factors that Predispose Someone to Disordered Eating Habits
1.Biological and genetic factors that predispose someone to disordered eating habits
The scientific studies on biology and eating disorders focus on women, and do not necessarily cancel out sociocultural issues with body image, media influence, gender, and other socially constructed phenomenon. Women historically have been diagnosed with eating disorders more than men, and studies seem to suggest a triadic link between obesity, women, and disordered eating, but as Stringer mentions, this could be the result of the numerous amount of studies that focus on women which could be an incomplete picture of the disorder (Striegel-Moore, 2007). Both overeating and restricted eating have strong ties to heredity and genetic makeup (Schur, 2009). Anorexia is more prevalent among people who have family that suffered with the disease (Judd, 2011 p. 210). Twin studies are a common way to corroborate disordered eating with hereditary predisposition. Bivariate findings suggest a genetic link between disordered eating and depression (Slane, 2011)....
