Because susceptibility for eating-related concerns exists along a continuum, this manuscript first introduces a framework for intervention that offers a continuum of responses for addressing such concerns in young adult women. The mental health strategies needed range from early identification and interventions for subthreshold problems to more advanced counseling approaches to address emerging and full eating concerns. It next discusses three different types of interventions: (a) preventive approaches for young women at risk; (b) intermediate approaches for women who demonstrate initial symptoms of disordered eating; and (c) psychotherapeutic interventions for women whose symptoms meet diagnostic criteria for eating disorders.
