What do you know about eating disorders?


The week of 24th February – 2nd March 2014 is Eating Disorders Awareness Week . It’s  a great time to increase your understanding, especially if your answer to my question was, “not a lot”. Check out the beat (beating eating disorders charity) website for information about eating disorders . For me, the best way to learn about disorders are through the stories of people who have experienced them. Read  recovery stories , for example  Jonathan  or Amy ‘s, and look out for how eating disorders affect roles and occupational performance, and the part occupation can play in recovery. The website has a range of information resources including a guide for athletes  and information about eating disorders in the workplace .

As a precursor to Eating Disorders Awareness Week, we will be hosting an #OTalk twitter chat about occupational therapy and eating disorders on 18 February 2014 at 8pm GMT (click the link for local time)…
