College is a time of tremendous excitement and transformation, even for students who believe they are prepared to take on the hazards that often loom ahead. Those with eating disorders, whether preexisting or emergent, face multiple adjustments to collegiate life that may cause them to return to their default mode of coping, reverse treatment gains and struggle with body image dissatisfaction and social pressures.
This workshop will address specific challenges in working with this population, offer an overall clinical approach to treatment, examine developmental issues for college students, and explore the role of parental involvement.
