Combining expert commentary with the memorable stories of real teens, this DVD introduces students to three major eating disorders: anorexia nervosa, bulimia and binge eating. The warning signs, symptoms and dangerous health deficits of each disorder are explained as well as the important underlying emotional and psychological underpinnings. The compelling stories of three real teens who have faced eating disorders are provided to help viewers understand that eating disorders can happen to anyone. We hear from Mindi, a recovering anorexic who was diagnosed at an early age. Josh is a recovering bulimic who tells viewers that eating disorders affect both males and females. We also hear the tragic story of Kristen from her parents, who explain how Kristen's anorexia and bulimia eventually led to her death. In addition to these powerful segments, viewers also hear expert advice on how to get help as well as various treatment options that are likely to prove successful. As the DVD progresses, viewers learn how eating disorders are related to personality, self esteem and body image concerns. Teacher's Resource Book offers thought-provoking follow-up activities for students who wish to learn more about these devastating, yet curable, disorders.
