Description: The materials in this BodyWise Information Packet on Eating Disorders for Middle School Personnel were developed by health communications specialists in partnership with researchers, clinicians, and educators committed to increasing awareness about eating disorders. In addition, school personnel provided input into the development of these materials by participating in focus group meetings conducted by OWH in ethnically and geographically diverse regions of the country.
The BodyWise packet features information specifically directed to adults working with students in grades five, six, and seven. It addresses the signs and symptoms of eating disorders, steps to take when concerned about students, and ways to create a school environment that discourages disordered eating.
