Eating Disorder Case Study

The purpose of this case study is to give you experience in applying course material to “real-life” situations and to examine issues relating to Health Psychology principles.

First, view/read background information on Stella at http://lc.gcumedia.com/psy362/brain-based-learning…; then, in 250-500 words, do the following:

  1. Describe what (if any) eating disorder Stella is at risk for developing and what factors might be contributing
  2. Describe symptoms her family/doctor should look for to determine if she has developed an eating disorder.
  3. Explain what treatments might be effective in treating eating disorders. You should identify psychological treatments in addition to other types of interventions. For example, your discussion of treatment should not solely be “monitored by a dietician.” You must include psychological interventions.

Remember to USE and DEFINE class terms in your answer (you may use information from lecture, the text, or outside resources).

Use two to three scholarly resources to support your explanations.
