Career Women and Eating Disorders

This article from the Grindstone does not surprise me one bit. The general public believes that eating disorders are purely the domain of white, well-to-do teenage girls, and that is a false assumption. It makes sense that women that have dealt with an eating disorder before might have a relapse or have their eating disorder symptoms flare in a high-pressure career situation. The Renfrew program for 30+ women sounds interesting, and possibly very helpful. I know that when I was in treatment, a lot of women over 25 seemed to feel somewhat out of place. A program like Renfrew’s might’ve been helpful to them.
