Martina Hartman about Eating Disorders

Martina Hartmann explains how Dick und Dünn started and which were the reasons to begin a project with those features. Dick und Dünn has something very clear and that is prevention efforts will fail, or worse, inadvertently encourage disordered eating, if they concentrate solely on warning the public about the signs, symptoms, and dangers of eating disorders. To be an effective prevention program must also address:, our cultural obsession with slenderness as a physical, psychological, and moral issue, the roles of men and women in our society and the development of people’s self-esteem and selfrespect in a variety of areas (school, work, community service, hobbies, etc.) that transcend physical appearance.
