Almost Anorexia on College Campuses
The Counseling Center will host the webinar "Almost Anorexia on College Campuses: Recognition, Treatment, and Prevention" on Wednesday, February 12, from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. in Weigel Health Center 203. The presenters are Jennifer J. Thomas, Ph.D., and Jenni Schaefer (author of Life without Ed).
Millions of men and women struggle with disordered eating. While one in 200 adults has experienced full-blown anorexia nervosa, at least one in 20 (one in 10 teen girls) has 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 of the same name, Thomas and Schaefer call this once-overlooked category "almost anorexic."
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 find full and lasting recovery.
