When the Scale Defines the Student: Understanding Eating Disorders

from 35.00

Course description: Media has always had an impact on how citizens see themselves and interact with the world around them. Over the past several years, with the additions of social media and streaming services, students are more immersed in media and its expectations than ever before. Poor body image, peer pressure, and marginalization are just a few of the many contributing factors in eating disorders among students. Today’s teachers and administrators are seeing an increase in students with specific mental health needs and unhealthy coping behaviors, including “extremes, developing abnormal eating habits that threaten their well-being and even their live.” (American Psychological Association, 2017)

This course will cover the subject of eating disorders impacting students, and why educators should have a working knowledge of warning signs and intervention strategies. Participants will be guided through different eating disorders and causes, and be given ideas on how to support students in their school who may be coping with eating disorders.
