Title Using Weight to Control the Uncontrollable
Date 2000-03
Description Bulimic behavior? Jane M. Blackwell, Ph.D., remembers how people would wrinkle their foreheads when she used the phrase in lectures 15 years ago. "Now it's a household word. "We thought bulimia would be gone, that it was a fad," said the clinical psychologist, who first held a therapy session on body image in 1979. "But it's epidemic." Lynne Dickey, M.S., isn't surprised. She's watched the enrollment in her College of Health class, "Understanding Eating Disorders & Body Image," double in recent years. Many of the students have had anorexia or bulimia.
