Heading into the warmer, summer months can bring up a lot of feelings when our kids & teens think about wearing shorts, T-shirts, and bathing suits.
Eating disorders and body dysmorphia occur all year long, but wearing fewer clothes in the summer heat can trigger a lot of emotions. So today we are focusing on eating disorders: signs and symptoms, mental illness, and treatments, and how to talk about bodies & weight with our children.
Joining us today for this conversation is Dr. Nicole Cifra. She is a third-year pediatric fellow at the University of Rochester Medical Center and currently serves on the Medical Care Standards Committee of the Academy for Eating Disorders.
