Eating disorders are becoming a rising problem in many individuals regardless of their age or gender. Eating disorders are problems that revolve around abnormal eating behaviors and distorted beliefs about eating, weight or shape. They can be classified as psychiatric problems, which are considered a general medical condition. Eating disorders happen when individuals are obsessed about controlling their weight by controlling what they eat. Often, they judge their self-worth by their ability to control their weight/shape (Grilo 6). It is no secret that eating disorders are alarmingly common. Especially now, in this culture, where large corporations are “investing” in this industry as a result of their market research which can then only mean one thing – eating

A fun fact about Jack’s life is that his brother told him to chew pine tar gum and soak his face in brine to toughen his skin. Around the age
Solution – Focused Brief Therapy looks at finding solutions rather than looking at the problem itself. The main key concepts of SFBT are 1) having a positive orientation, 2) looking for what is working, and 3) basic assumptions guiding practice (Corey, 2009). Having a positive orientation refers to having an “optimistic assumption that people are healthy and competent and have the ability to construct solutions that can enhance their lives” (Corey, 2009, p. 378). An example of what looking for what is working means is “it encourages people to move out of analyzing the nature of the problem and how it arose and instead to begin to find solutions and take action to solve it” (Corey, 2009, p. 379).

Prior to this class I did not know the severity of just how deadly eating disorders were. Growing up you heard about eating disorders and there may have been a few girls in high school that you knew were suffering from an eating disorder but that was the extent of what you knew. The fact that 8 million people are affected by an eating disorder is a staggering number that should alarm parents and peers alone. But although it affects this many people and has the highest mortality rate among psychiatric disorders it is rarely talked about until it hits close to home. As clinicians, this is a huge epidemic that we need to be well versed in especially since the stakes are so high.

Reese Library came about when Kathrine Reese Pamplin and her husband donated $250,000 to the University System of Georgia Board of Regents in 1972 (about).

Like most young girls, I grew up surrounded by fashion magazines, beauty queens from different beauty pageants, Victoria’s Secret catalogues, movies and sitcomes filled with thin, beautiful women - the only body type that was ever presented. I played with Barbie dolls and idolized Disney Pricesses, both with waists so thin as if untroubled by the existance of iternal organs. At that fragile age of growing up and shaping as a human, I coudn’t quite see that something was wrong with my Barbie or the princesses I worshiped. I could only see how beautiful they are, how slim and fragile their bodies are and dreamed of becoming like them one day. Subconsciously I was already applying for membership in the most manipulative and even sometimes life-threatening club called „The Cult of Thinness“.

Marya’s experience with body dysmorphia and eating habits developed from an extremely young age. Recalling as far back in her life as age five, Marya had a different relationship with food than the typical child. At age three, Marya recalled hiding in her clothes hamper, claiming she was just the right size to fit perfectly inside of it, and how she wanted to stay that size forever. This particular memory of hers was remembered as if she has been watching herself from an outsiders point of view. This type of memory, or objectification consciousness, is common with patients with eating disorders. Marya described the experience as “perceiving themselves through other eyes, as if there were some Great Observer looking over their shoulder” (Hornbacher 14).
