Disordered Eater vs. Eating Disorder - What’s the difference?
A lot of questions about this! I hope you like the video. :)
Disordered eating is a classification (within DSM-IV-TR, used in the health-care field) to describe a wide range of irregular eating behaviors that do not warrant a diagnosis of a specific eating disorder such as anorexia nervosa or bulimia nervosa. A change in eating patterns can also be caused by other mental disorders (e.g. clinical depression), or by factors that are generally considered to be unrelated to mental disorders (e.g. extreme homesickness, etc).
1. KATI!!! Literally Thank GOD YOU ARE BACK!! I’m semi-holding on.. :) #katifaq Do you have simple, quick tips to make YOURSELF feel SAFE w/o needing a person 2 do it for you? Simply put, how can you rely on yourself in the moment to feel safe (from abusers, ptsd Etc? Thanks!
2. You often say that “If you don’t like your therapist you don’t have to go back”. What if it’s the other way around, that you as a therapist feel you don’t “click” with the patient. Do you tell them and how?
3. I was wondering if you could please tell me what you define to be ‘casual sex’, and why it isn’t good for us?
4. Hey Kati, I feel sort of hurt by my last therapist and now am scared to get help again. My therapy was very abruptly ended and I wasn’t given a referral to any other place, or any way to have the medication i was put on whilst being treated monitored. He sort of said I wasn’t “severe enough” with a laugh which seemed like a poor excuse because I was very unstable and later rejected from another program i tried to get help from for being “too depressed”. I don’t really know what to do now because every time i try and get help im told I’m either too sick or not sick enough. This is a public health system so i only have a few options available and i feel like ive already exhausted them all. Now what am I meant to do?
REBLOG & CLICK THE PHOTO TO WATCH: What is Trichotillomania (hair pulling disorder) & how do we deal with it? Mental Health Videos with Kati Morton
This is an impulse control disorder in which a person pulls their hair out. This can be hair on your head, eyebrows, eyelashes or anywhere else on your body. The most common are those on our heads, mostly because they are easy areas to get to. People do this when they are active and at rest. The only anxiety that is associated with this is right before the hair pulling or if they try and stop doing it. I hope this video helps you better understand it :)
