Many of them are adolescent females, for whom nutritional deprivation during the growth years can have severe and lasting consequences. Surprisingly, older people and athletes are also at risk. This comprehensive course focuses on diagnosis and treatment, with emphasis on assessment techniques, counseling strategies and nutritional interventions.

I realize this material is several years old now, however, the term "anorexic" is widely discouraged as it intertwines the patients true identity with their eating disorder. Would like to see this updated.
