You may be wondering if a friend or if you might be at risk of developing an eating disorder. 

A first step might be to take the online screening at http://www.mybodyscreening.org/. If the results show that you (or your friend) are at risk or clearly have an eating disorder, it is time to seek help.

About twenty percent of workplace bullying crosses the line into harassment. Workplace bullying refers to the repeated, health-impairing, mistreatment of a target, driven by the perpetrators need to control. Allowed to continue this behavior undermines legitimate business interests, lowers morale, and impacts the overall ability “to get work done.” Workplace bullying can make life quite miserable and difficult. Supervisors should especially be made aware of workplace bullies, since they can disrupt productivity and create a hostile work environment which can lead to legal ramifications.

We’re in the midst of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (NEDAW), and the focus this year is on getting screened. It is a good time to assess your own thoughts about eating, body weight, and exercise. Are your attitudes in a healthy range, or could you be at risk for disordered eating or an eating disorder? 

Maybe you are concerned about a friend who has recently become preoccupied with food, dieting, weight, and body image, and who seems depressed or irritable. They may be having difficulties with their academic work or with friendships. These signs may indicate an eating disorder.
