Sally Cook What risk factors
contribute to the development of adolescent eating disorders? Eating disorders develop from a variety of different situations and characteristics rather than from one singular event or trait. In western culture, some of the biggest risk factors include PARENTING SYTLES, ETHNICITY, MEDIA, PEER INFLUENCE, PERSONALITY TYPE, and GENDER WHAT WE LEARNED: Primary socialization of children

Single parent homes

Negative comments from mothers

Shape eating habits from a young age PARENTS Western cultures have higher rates than nonwestern cultures

Western cultures also have higher rates as people approach ages 17-21

Eating problems among Asian cultures are less frequent than most other cultures ETHNICITY Big influence comes from amount of time spent reading/watching things about beauty & appearance

Amount of TV not influential, but content of program is

Western Culture MEDIA Peers are highly influential

Priorities of friend groups contribute to eating disorders

Bullying PEER INFLUENCE Low self esteem

Control issues


Genetics PERSONALITY TYPE Females are more likely than males

Females who reach puberty early

Males involved in extreme workouts GENDER Can physically stunt growth

Physically and mentally unhealthy

Issues can carry on into adulthood = lifelong struggle ...SO WHAT? Holistic care

Look for these risk factors

Take family situations, personalities, etc. into account when assessing clients (instead of just physical symptoms)

Be aware that it is a PHYSICAL and MENTAL disease WHAT CAN NURSES

International Journal Of Eating Disorders, 43(7), 648-658.We developed the core question, "What risk factors contribute to the development of adolescent eating disorders?" After looking at the articles below we believe that eating disorders tend to have several contributing factors including ethnicity, family life and relationship with parents, family history, temperament and anxiety levels as well as risk seeking behavior.Review ArticlesEnten, R., & Golan, M.
