Bastyr University's departments of Nutrition and Exercise Science and Counseling and Health Psychology bring you the third annual National Eating Disorders Awareness Week Speaker Series from February 27 to March 1, 2012.

Speakers at the talk titled "Too Much of a Good Thing: Exercise Addiction and Orthorexia" are Bastyr faculty members Tiffany Reiss, MS, PhD, and Cristen Harris, PhD, RD, who will explore and discuss:

  • Differences between concern for health and obsession
  • Psychology and etiology behind each, including role of societal ideals
  • How to support patients/clients without supporting obsessions

While eating disorders may begin with preoccupations with food and weight, they are most often about much more than food. Join us to learn more about eating disorder awareness, prevention and treatment.
