Jessie, who is 12 years old, is referred to the mental health clinic by her pediatrician. She is accompanied by her worried parents. Jessie has lost 15 pounds over the past year, which has placed her 15% below the expected weight for her age and height group. The pediatrician has not determined any medical cause. Jessie tells the nurse, Eleanor, that she is not “sick” and is not “thin,” as her parents say she is. She adds that, “I need to lose more weight, because I’m still fat.” Her parents state that Jessie began to severely restrict her diet after a classmate told her that she should lose some pounds, although Jessie’s weight was normal. She began to weigh herself excessively, count calories, and exercise more often. Her parents have removed the scales from the house and have limited her exercise time, without success. They have tried pleading and demanding that she eat, but these, too, have been unsuccessful.
