Figured World of Eating Disorder - Web Link Access

Figured World of Eating Disorder - Web Link Access

The biomedical diagnosis of eating disorders signifies a mental illness with complex physical symptomology. The impact of eating disorders on occupations are however not well represented in the literature or this framing. This presentation will introduce "figured world" as an alternate, sociocultural framework for how eating disorders exist in everyday life, particularly because eating disorders are really "not about the food". It will propose how meaning in illness can arise, complicating the relationship between occupation and health. For occupational therapists, these challenges require the reattribution of meaning within daily occupations. Reflections on and suggestions for practice will be highlighted.
