Almost Anorexia on College Campuses: Recognition, Treatment, and Prevention with Jenni Schaefer and Jennifer J. Thomas, Ph.D., Harvard Medical School
Millions of men and women struggle with disordered eating. While 1 in 200 adults have experienced full-blown anorexia nervosa, at least 1 in 20 (1 in 10 teen girls!) have exhibited some key symptoms. Many suffer from the effects but never address the issue because they don’t fully meet the diagnostic criteria. In their book by the same name, Dr. Jennifer Thomas and Jenni Schaefer call this once overlooked category almost anorexic. Five symptoms of almost anorexia can include:
1. Frequent Weight Changes: Weight shifts due to intentional attempts to drop pounds
2. Frequent Restriction: Regularly restricting food by amount or variety
3. Mild or Infrequent Compensatory Behaviors: Trying to “make up for” calories consumed
4. Mild or Infrequent Binge Eating: Eating large amounts of food while feeling out of control
5. Negative Body Image: Interferes with living life to the fullest
Drawing on the latest research, this webinar combines a psychologist’s experience with a patient’s personal recovery story to assist you in detecting and preventing eating disorders on campus. Further, you will learn proven strategies to help those who struggle to find a full and lasting recovery.
