Description

In Teenage Eating Disorders, Dr. Raine Weiner demonstrates her approach to working with adolescent clients who present with eating disorders. Eating disorders, which include anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating, are common among teenagers, especially among girls.

In this session, Dr. Weiner works with a girl who is experiencing obsessive thoughts, recurrent anxiety, and periodic sadness regarding her weight and appearance. She uses an eclectic approach that incorporates aspects of psychodynamic and cognitive–behavioral therapies. Dr. Weiner challenges the client's view of the "perfect body" and helps her work toward a stronger self-image and an awareness of what might be causing her obsessive thoughts and painful emotions.
