The National Eating Disorders Association [NEDA] has launched a new educational toolkit that could be extremely helpful to those who instruct dance. Although it is primarily geared toward athletic departments, athletic programs and gyms, any dance instructor can benefit from having a good knowledge of eating disorders.
This resource has information from nutritionists, coaches and even from Kate Thomas, Director of The School at Steps Dance School.
Information covered includes:
+ The facts about eating disorders
+ Help with identifying those affected by eating disorders
+ A guide to possible treatments
