Eating disorders are one of the most common problems that school social workers encounter with their students. This chapter begins with an overview of eating disorders, including definitional and descriptive information, causative factors, and student impacts. The chapter focuses on the three most common types of eating disorders, which are anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder. Next, rationale for using a Solution-Focused Brief Therapy approach will be presented and a discussion for why it is a good fit for working with students who have eating disorders. Following the rationale, a case study will demonstrate the use of SFBT techniques by a school social worker in a therapy session with a student experiencing an eating disorder.
