Technology and Eating Disorders: How It Can Help and How It Can Hurt

Technology is used in virtually every aspect of our lives, sometimes proactively to provide information and help, other times insidiously to implant and harden beliefs or concepts. The combination of an eating disorder and technology in the form of eating disorder apps, online articles and videos, social media comments and images are a powerful mix.

Used correctly, technology can help one struggling with an eating disorder. Used improperly, technology can have devastating and long-term consequences. Dr. Gregory Jantz leads an important and focused review of ways counseling professionals can use technology for good, and ways to safeguard against misuse.
