Richards, Kaye; Allin, Linda
Horizons, n16 p18-24 Win 2001
The history and etiology of eating disorders are briefly outlined, with attention to their prevalence in adolescent girls. A critical examination of the links among outdoor adventure, eating disorders, and physicality shows how adventure programs can reinforce eating disorders. Strategies are presented that illustrate the potential of outdoor adventure in positive interventions for eating disorders. (Contains 42 references.) (TD)
