Springer, Sarah I.; Levitt, Dana Heller
Journal of School Counseling, v14 n2 2016
Body image disturbance continues to be recognized in increasingly younger populations. Eating issues among elementary school children have become more overt and statistically prevalent in recent years. Elementary school counselors are in important positions to provide their communities with early detection information and prevention strategies. This manuscript will identify potential causes and risks associated with body image disturbance in elementary school-age children and present strategies for school counselors that address detection, prevention, and intervention efforts.
