Are you or is someone you know affected by eating and food issues? If so, you may find Eating Disorders and Disordered Eating to be a helpful resource.

About the Video

Eating and food issues can take many forms. You might be most familiar with anorexia and bulimia. However, you don’t need a clinical diagnosis to have a problematic relationship with food. Other potential problems could include exercise addiction, obsessive dieting, and negative body image. This video can help you gain insight into these issues. As always, if you or a loved one is in crisis, you can dial 911 to reach your local emergency center.

    Eating right has become the new focus for a lot of people and there are also plenty of us who suffer from eating disorders. Although nobody I know suffers from any I would be looking forward to this talk because I like knowing about newer things and gaining some knowledge.

    I’ve been reading quite a lot about eating disorders of late and if there’s one thing that I’ve realized then it is that a lot of people pay attention to their weight but not much beyond that. Just keeping your weight under control is not enough or it does not mean that you are doing everything right.

    You need to eat right too. And because I’m gaining a lot of interest in this topic, I’m sure to attend this talk. Thank you for organizing this talk,Good Therapy!

    I am going to try to talk a friend into joining the webcast. I know that she has a problem with eating- most of her friends know. But she refuses to see things that way. She takes health to the extreme, or what she perceives to be health, whereas the rest of us see it as being overly obsessed. Any ideas on how to approach her with this, because she does tend to take offense when the subject comes up, even when or if it does not refer to her.
