Eating Disorders 101 Radio Interview (pre DSMV) – Michelle Sparkes

Eating Disorders 101 Radio Interview (pre DSMV)

This is a radio interview I did with Hamish and Emma onĀ The Dip (94.5FM) prior to the relase of the DSMV. It covers some generalĀ info about eating disorders, definitions and differences, media influences, body image, the “perfection lie” and recovery. It should be noted the DSMV no longer includes the 85% expected weight for height criteria that was part of DSM-IV Diagnostic Criteria for Anorexia Nervosa. The sound is not brilliant but there’s some great info here for strugglers and carers. Don’t forget to subscribe, rate and review so others kind find the podcast.
