Eating Disorder and Identity: The Church’s Vital Role in Helping Teens Find Purpose and Belonging

By the time girls reach adulthood, over half will have dieted or used extreme means to lose or control their weight. Worldwide, eating disorders for both men and women impact about 9% of the population. Since the pandemic, anorexia hospitalizations have increased dramatically.

In this session, Catherine will discuss the factors that contribute to the development of eating disorders. Catherine will also share the Church’s vital role in helping teens learn who God made them to be–their identity–as both a protective factor and factor critical for eating disorder recovery.
