School Prevention Program


Eating disorders are life threatening and reaching epidemic proportions. According to the
National Institute of Health, “10% of eating disorder sufferers die” and “86% report onset of illness by the age of 20.” Adolescents are at prime risk for developing an eating disorder and the team at Clarity Counseling would like to help by extending resources and information through their School Prevention Program. 

This is an age appropriate program created for the prevention, identification and intervention of eating disorders. The presentation involves an eating disorder specialist, providing information to students, parents, and/or professionals about the seriousness of eating disorders and how they can identify one in themselves or friends. Students will be asked to look at media messages and changes in society, while identifying the different disorders and discuss on why people develop eating disorders, why they are dysfunctional and life threatening, and healthy alternative cope strategies. It will also address what students/parents/professionals can do if he/she suspect that a friend or family member has an eating disorder.

Please contact Alicia Ayvas  at aayvas@gmail.com if you are interested in Clarity's School Prevention Program or have any questions/concerns on presentation topics. This is a great way to educate and help students, parents, and/or professionals to identify and intervene in this life threatening and serious disorder.
