Presented by: Ashley Moser, LMFT, CEDS - Clinical Education Specialist, The Renfrew Center
No longer is the prospect of reaching midlife accompanied by the confidence and self-assuredness we were led to believe we would develop with age. Myths of caring less about appearance and shedding our younger selves’ insecurities are dashed as women in midlife find that, in our youth-obsessed culture, ageing brings with it a whole new level of anxiety and shame. Life transitions, once celebrated, now lead to feelings of dread, often accompanied by a relentless pressure to defy the ageing process. Cultural stereotypes about ageing increase body image despair in midlife women, thus increasing the likelihood that many will develop an eating disorder.
This presentation will address the factors that contribute to the rise of eating disorders in midlife women and explore the unique clinical presentations and treatment needs of this population.
