(p.119) 8 Effective Interventions for Students With Eating Disorders
The School Practitioner’s Concise Companion to Health and Well Being

Theresa J. Early

Oxford University Press

Eating disorders are an important concern for school social workers and mental health personnel because these disorders often begin in adolescence. A number of school-based interventions aimed at prevention are described in the literature. In addition, professionals in the schools are in a position to notice eating disorders and assist with interventions, either through providing treatment or through supporting students who are participating in treatment in another setting. This chapter discusses two types of eating disorders that are diagnosed in youth — anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa — and strategies of effective intervention based on the small amount of existing empirical evidence.

Keywords:   eating disorders, school-based interventions, adolescents, teenagers, anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa
