Factors in this category include:

Low self-esteem

Feelings of inadequacy or lack of control in life

Depression, anxiety, anger, or lonelinessSlide4

Causes - Interpersonal

Factors include

Troubled family and personal relationships

Difficulty expressing emotions and feelings

History of being teased or ridiculed based of size or weight

History of physical or sexual abuseSlide5

Causes - Social

Factors include:

Cultural pressures that glorify “thinness” and place value on obtaining the “perfect body”

Narrow definitions of beauty that include only women and men of specific body weights and shapes

Cultural norms that value people on the basis of physical appearance and not inner qualities and strengthsSlide6

Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness

The mortality rate associated with anorexia nervosa is 12 times higher than the death rate of ALL causes of death for females 15 – 24 years old.

20% of people suffering from anorexia will prematurely die from complications related to their eating disorder, including suicide and heart problemsSlide8

Choose to challenge the false belief that thinness and weight loss are great, while body fat and weight gain are horrible or indicate laziness, worthlessness, or immorality.

If you think someone has an eating disorder, express your concerns in a forthright, caring manner. Gently but firmly encourage the person to seek trained professional help.

Avoid conveying an attitude that says, “I will like you better if you lose weight, or don’t eat so much, etc.” Slide24
