In this class, we will discuss the psychology behind eating disorders and critically discuss the book "Not Hungry" by Kate Karyus Quinn. "Not Hungry" is a young adult (YA) book written in verse. June, the main character, has an eating disorder. This book discusses how her eating disorder impacts her relationships with her sister, best friend, and a boy who lives next door. Learners are required to purchase a copy of this book for the class. Here's what we will cover: Meeting #1: We will...
I have a PhD. in psychology from the University of Arizona. I've taught college classes for over ten years.
For Meeting #2, learners will be required to finish reading the book "Not Hungry".
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
We will discuss eating disorders in the class using scientific studies and critically discuss the themes in the book. I will not be able to provide any treatment advice because I'm not a practicing clinical psychologist. There are wonderful resources available to help people struggling with eating disorders, such as the National Eating Disorders Association (https://www.nationaleatingdisorders.org/). If a learner states they have an eating disorder, I will reach out to their grown-up to follow up. The book "Not Hungry" is written for young adults. I would encourage parents to read the book along with the learners. The book is written in verse (e.g., poetry) and it's a quick read. Content warnings include eating disorders, body shaming, dating violence, and mentions of family violence and drug addiction.
The information for the eating disorder portion of the class comes from the college textbook: Understanding Abnormal Behavior (11th edition) by Sue (https://www.cengage.com/c/understanding-abnormal-behavior-11e-/9780357670941PF/).
