In the 4th of our 5 part series on Unpacking Eating Disorders Sarah Terwilligar discusses – What is an eating disorder symptom, how symptoms are hidden and what this looks like i.e. smearing. We talk as well about learning how to observe and what to look for and the importance of understanding eating disorders first so that you can better observe and understand the symptoms for your child which is one of the foundational reasons we created the Eating Disorder Caregiver Coaching Group.
Understanding more about the mentality of getting rid of nutrition so it doesn’t go in their body, the if I don’t eat it all that’s better (in the case of restriction). And the dangerous effects of pro-Ana websites on social media – what they are and what their intention is.
