Eating Disorders, Disordered Eating Behaviors, and Body Image in Athletes

Athletes may be more prone to developing eating disorders, disordered eating behaviors, and poor body image. Sport-related factors may increase risk for onset and maintenance of any one of these issues. In this webinar, we will discuss screening for and treatment of eating disorders and disordered eating in athletes in addition to sport-specific risk factors. We will also highlight specific considerations around exercise and training throughout the recovery process.
