Do parents cause eating disorders? See the video

Posted Aug 26 2008 4:04pm 1 Comment

Give me 3 minutes and I think I can make you either smile or scream.

Earlier this year, I interviewed a number of eating disorder experts on camera. I've compiled a short video with some clips from those interviews, on the question, "Do parents cause eating disorders?"

There will be more videos to come, and I welcome you to send me video or voice clips describing your experiences with guilt or blaming in eating disorders. Your video can be of you talking, or of your dinner table while you are talking, or hand puppets if you like.

What about the daughter or son of a closet-Anorexic who has functioned for years and has given birth to healthy children despite the disease and very low pregnancy weight?  Can that behavior be modeled in a child who is sensitive or attention-seeking or simply mimicking the Anorexia behavior of the Parent?  Is there a higher incidence of Anorexia in children of Anorexics?  Thank you!
