Topic: When an Athlete Gets an Eating Disorder
Speaker: Abby McCrea, LMFT
More about our topic and speaker:
Clinical eating disorders cause significant problems for more than 40% of athletes. Subsequently, the subtleties between “good athlete” and “eating disorder” mindsets can become particularly tricky to discern after the onset of an eating disorder. Knowing the risks, possible causes, and how to support athletes with eating problems is essential for developing and sustaining athletic wellbeing.
This talk is designed to help you:
- Explain how and why athletes get eating problems
- Recognize the subtle differences between a “good athlete” and an “eating disorder” mindset
- Create ways to support athletes with eating problems
