Fearmongering in the News This Week About the O-word ‘Crisis’

by Vania Phitidis

HAES® is a Cornerstone for Recovery

by Lisa Pearl


“Based upon my experience as a pediatric specialist, I want to emphasize the life-time of damage that can occur when children are told that their bodies are inadequate/unacceptable/unhealthy because of their size. The incidence of eating disordered behaviors following participation in a pediatric weight loss program is alarming.”

Is your child's target weight a gift to the eating disorder?

By Eva Musby

 

“you can’t beat an eating disorder if you’re attached to a weight target that has been set too low. A target is one at which the brain and the mind are healthy, not just heart rate or blood pressure."

 

This is a fantastic resource explaining the 2 ways recovery weight targets are set for adolescents with an eating disorder and why the one based on BMI alone is a disaster for many kids.

 

Essential reading for all health professionals that work with kids and parents of kids with EDs.
