Eating Disorders and Body Image

Eating disorders are a mental health issue with serious physical health complications. Often treatment focuses exclusively on behaviors related to health risks, such as weight restoration, purging and over-exercise, neglecting underlying emotional issues and body dissatisfaction. While it is critical to first establish physical safety and stabilization, the underlying issues such as anxiety, depression, perfectionism, trauma, and body dissatisfaction must be addressed for complete recovery from an eating disorder.
