Good Enough to Eat: A Coach’s Guide to Addressing Body Image and Eating Issues Among School-Aged Athletes

Schools and school sport settings have an important role to play in the prevention and early intervention of Eating Disorders, and young female athletes may be at increased risk of developing Eating Disorders. This resource was designed to inform school sports coaches about body image, disordered eating, and Eating Disorders. The resource discusses the female athlete triad, the effects of eating issues upon the body, the prevalence and causes, and teaches coaches how to recognise early warning signs and intervene with high-risk students. The resource provides information about referral pathways and gives contact details for related organisations (in Queensland only).
