Eating disorders such as Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa are not on the decline. They are as prevalent as ever, which is why Learning ZoneXpress has partnered with Emmy award-winning documentary filmmaker Larkin McPhee to address the topic. Larkin is well known for her work with Dying to be Thin, a seminal film on eating disorders.
Our latest work together - Recovering: Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa - uncovers the challenges of coping with an eating disorder. It features experts in the field outlining symptoms, science behind the diseases and statistics. While real people recovering from the diseases talk frankly about their challenges coping with Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa. Their stories are eye opening.
Questions discussed in the video include:
- Who is at risk?
- What sustains an eating disorder?
- Why are eating disorders dangerous?
- How are eating disorders treated?
The video has been well received. Midwest Book Review said...
Eating disorders affect people of all ages and races, but young women are the most at risk for these potentially deadly afflictions. Recovering: Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa teaches viewers about who is at risk for an eating disorder, what sustains eating disorders, why eating disorders are dangerous (and sometimes lethal), and how eating disorders are treated. An invaluable teaching tool about a serious social problem, Recovering: Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa is worthy of the highest recommendation.
The video is designed for all ages from Grade 7 to adult. http://www.learningzonexpress.com/
