Abstract

How can the Church address the real and felt psychosocial, biological, emotional, and spiritual needs of privileged female adolescents so that they can avoid or overcome eating disorders? This project will argue that churches must equip themselves to support, encourage, protect, and teach privileged female adolescents who suffer from eating disorders or who display eating disorder tendencies. The Church must come alongside the parents, the teachers, the coaches, and anyone who works with privileged adolescent girls. This project recognizes that a youth pastor will serve as an encourager and a teacher as the congregation learns to care for adolescents with eating disorders.
