In today's culture obesity is becoming an epidemic for individuals of all ages. Research shows that obese adolescents have higher risks of being the victims and perpetrators of bullying in a school setting. School counselors should focus on this specialized population as a way to create prevention and intervention strategies. This paper reviews current literature demonstrating obese adolescents as a marginalized population, and how school counselors can utilize cognitive-behavioral therapy in working with obese adolescents.
