The library has recently acquired many new resources regarding eating disorders. These include workbooks, books about communication for family and friends, and even a book about the neuroscience behind eating disorders. Finding up-to-date information was not an easy task, as eating disorders are still misunderstood and under-researched.
These books are not meant to cure a person with body image issues, nor are they meant to replace professional help. If you or someone you know has body image or disordered eating issues, please consult the Counseling Center. There are no better resources available to you than the counselors.
To learn more about eating disorders and how to talk to someone about their eating disorder, please stop by the library’s new book shelf to pick up a brochure and browse the new arrivals (most start with call number RC). For more information please visit the National Eating Disorder’s website.
