This manual is a well-informed guide to assisting coaches to identify and respond to Eating Disorders. The manual is divided into sections of identification, intervention, supposed, and prevention. Coaches are taught to identify early warning signs and female athlete triad, how to respond when they believe a person is at risk of an Eating Disorder, how to support an athlete who has an Eating Disorder, and strategies to enhance protective factors and reduce risk factors, among other examples. Resources are provided, such as school policy guidance, Fitness Australia's Body Mass Index and Exercise Guidelines for GPs, a reading list, and referral information (for Victoria only).
