This is episode two of a series with my colleague Sarah Terwilligar, we discuss aspects of our new virtual eating disorder caregiver coaching group program.
In this episode Sarah is sharing the spectrum/continuum of disordered eating where it starts and how it progresses. There is no one size fits all presentation with an eating disorder, it looks differently for everyone. Eating disorder sub-types are introduced and explained and how thinking ‘this is just a phase’ is unhealthy and why. We spoke about how one does not need to have a formal diagnosis and how a negative body image could exist without disordered eating. Asking, are these issues disrupting your life? Are you pre-occupied with your size and shape?
This is two of a series of episodes on the topic of eating disorders and disordered eating, stay tuned for more!
