|Title/Topic: Free Eating Disorder Teleclasses Offered by the International Eating Disorders Institute Begin June|
|Posted On: 6/3/2009|
|June 3 2009 (pr-canada.net) – Concerned parents and those affected by eating disorders can learn more about eating disorders and how to prevent them during weekly scheduled teleclasses beginning on June 4th, 11:00 AM PST. Presented in a Q&A; format and answered by Sue Bates (licensed psychotherapist) and Jennifer Adler (certified nutritionist), these teleclasses are free of charge as part of the promotional pre-launch of the International Eating Disorders Institute (IEDI) membership-based program. |
It is estimated that as many as ten million females and one million males are fighting a life and death battle with an eating disorder such as anorexia, bulimia or binge eating. Still others struggle with a lesser known but equally debilitating eating disorder known as orthorexia nervosa (an extreme obsession with healthy eating). Through compassionate support and targeted education from eating disorder and parenting experts, the IEDI seeks to prevent eating disorders.
The International Eating Disorders Institute is the only membership-based community for eating disorder support and education that is founded and run by eating disorder experts in the fields of psychotherapy and nutrition. The aim of the institute is to provide women with information, resources, and practical tools so they can regain control of their lives and live free of any eating disorders. Ask the Therapist and Ask the Nutritionist teleclasses will be held weekly for providing this much needed assistance.
Despite the efforts of many well meaning advertisers such as The Dove Campaign for Real Beauty, the use of abnormally thin models continues to emphasize the idea that “thin is beautiful”. These prevailing standards for body weight and shape provoke poor self-images and make things worse for adolescents and adults with borderline eating disorders. The increasing number of young people with eating disorders is staggering and many parents are at a loss for coping with such issues. The ability to have frank conversations lead by two top eating disorder experts is the perfect solution for parents facing this dilemma.
“When parents need advice on how to prevent and overcome eating disorders, they contact us,” admits Bates, a licensed therapist with over 30 years of experience. “We’re not saying this to brag, but simply to illustrate that we’ve dealt face-to-face with family members and people affected by eating disorders. We bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to this program.”
“The IEDI weekly teleclasses are designed to address the needs of families and those affected by eating disorders,” says Adler, a certified nutritionist who also has a degree in Psychology. “We have the advantage of two related disciplines focused together on an important issue. When people worry about their body, their weight and food, they neglect to take care of other aspects of their lives.”
IEDI’S approach is interactive, informative and straightforward combining the expertise of both Bates and Adler to provide participants life changing support and guidance that can truly change your life. Concerned parents will want to take advantage of the pre-launch promotion and access these teleclasses while they are offered for free.
