Life Coach Elaine Williams explores eating disorders

elaine_williams
Certified life coach and an eating disorder survivor Elaine Williams will demonstrate her unique ability to make this serious subject entertaining on Monday, March 29, 2010 at 1:10 p.m. in the Perkins Student Center Auditorium. (This event was originally scheduled Feb. 10, 2010 but was rescheduled due to inclement weather.) The presentation is free and open to the public.

Williams was put on her first diet when she was six years old, and was binging, purging, and abusing laxatives by the time she was twelve. Her weight went up and down as she went from diet to diet over the years, obsessing about food, exercise, and her weight. After finally putting down the laxatives and other drugs, she had to uncover the underlying reasons why she abused herself and ate when she was not hungry. Williams shares her insight into why so many young adults struggle with emotional eating when dealing with the pressures of college life.

Certified through the Ford Institute for Integrative Coaching at JFK University, Williams is a sought after speaker and respected expert in the field. This presentation is part of the college's Arts and Lecture series. For more information, contact the Office of Campus Life at 610-396-6076.
