The Blind Side of Bulimia: A Painted Dissection of How the Trajectory of Bulimia Nervosa is Perpetuated within Society.

This project aims to understand how eating disorder psychopathology, specifically with Bulimia Nervosa, is perpetuated, particularly by the unspoken rules of society that inadvertently provoke self -shame and discomfort by promoting a singular mold of beauty. Personally, I want to dissect the various psychological components that one faces when falling into this self-destructive disorder through the use of research and visual play. Art is a catalyst in unveiling the complexities of the human condition that are often concealed by those who feel them intimately, which is why it is a necessary means to reveal what is typically kept secret. Granted, it is worth noting that the paintings produced are meant to evoke a specific headspace rather than be a tool for art therapy.

Pac-12 Eating Disorder Resource Accessibility

Description

This research topic surrounds eating disorders and their growing prevalence in college and college-age students. It focuses on the online resources made available by universities to aid in the treatment

This research topic surrounds eating disorders and their growing prevalence in college and college-age students. It focuses on the online resources made available by universities to aid in the treatment of these disorders. College students go to the internet first when looking up health information, and this makes it crucial that universities are up to date with their online health and counseling information. The purpose of this research was to analyze the online presence for eating disorder treatment presented by universities within the Pac-12. Analysis was based on three criteria: content presentation, navigation and information. Of the 12 universities, no university supplied all the information subcategories listed in Table 1. However, six of the 12 universities had at least 50.00% of the information subcategories listed on their websites. Also, 58.33% of the universities identified eating disorders as a reason to seek counseling services. However, with only 33.33% having an eating disorder resource page, more needs to be offered on the universities' websites.
