The Effectiveness of Counseling Groups in Schools to Help Students Cope with Eating Disorders.

This paper will address the effectiveness of using groups with different styles and techniques in a K-12 school setting to help students with a range of eating disorders. The groups may be effective based on one type of psychological theory versus another, or because of the short-term versus long-term nature of the groups, to name a few. The students differ in the particular eating disorder with which they are associated or in the severity of their diagnosis. The school settings range from elementary to high school as well. Overall, this paper will present the most effective group model for students with eating disorders at several of the grade levels within an educational system
