CASADO MORALES, María Isabel  y  HELGUERA FUENTES, Mayte. Eating disorders: A two step prevention program. Clínica y Salud [online]. 2008, vol.19, n.1, pp.5-26. ISSN 1130-5274.

A program for the prevention of eating disorders was developed and implemented. The program is implemented in two stages, first there is a work with a group of high risk teenagers and then it is complemented with parent involvement. The work develops within the framework of indirect primary prevention -a key issue in this area since it is well known that these disorders are difficult to identify and that their nature entails concealment and refusal of help. Hence, prevention is very effective since it addresses the risk factors associated to eating disorders. Therefore, the emphasis of this work with adolescents and parents does not lie directly on modifying the risk behaviour but rather on providing personal strategies to minimize the effect of risk factors associated with eating disorders.
