This presentation will cover an undergraduate Honors Project exploring the use of exercise as part of the treatment plan in eating disorder rehabilitation programs. To understand the current use of exercise in outpatient eating disorder rehabilitation centers, a survey was conducted. The two major research questions covered in this survey included ""Are outpatient eating disorder rehabilitation programs currently incorporating exercise into their treatment program? and ""Are outpatient eating disorder rehabilitation programs currently incorporating individualized exercise for clients in the treatment programs?"" Three results were collected from the survey analysis and addressed the research questions. These three results indicated the use of exercise into their treatment programs, but were not synchronous in the use of individualized exercise in outpatient treatment programs. Additional research will be conducted at the Master's level resuming Fall 2021.
