Eating Disorder Glossary

AED has linked up with F.E.A.S.T. -- Families Empowered and Supporting Treatment of Eating Disorders -- to launch the first comprehensive Eating Disorders Glossary. The online glossary defines and explains more than 400 terms and concepts used in diagnosis, treatment and research on eating disorders and disturbances. The 40,000-word reference is designed to help families understand the complex world of eating disorders, but may also prove useful to non-specialist professionals. Key to the link-up, AED professionals are invited to suggest additions and modifications to this unique dictionary for the benefit of families worldwide.
