About the Course:
Weight obsessions, fat hatred and body loathing plague millions of American women and men of all ages. Yet, even as the epidemic spreads, little is known about the inner hungers that eating disorders express. A Starving Madness: Tales of Hunger, Hope and Healing from Psychotherapy is a collection of case studies from the office of a psychologist specializing in eating and body image disorders: anorexia, bulimia, binge eating and compulsive exercise. Each of eight chapters is based on a clinical case describing the inner struggles of people tormented by their relationship with food, weight and their bodies, symptoms that covered deep emotional wounds. Offering unique insights, compassion and practical information about how eating disorders develop and can heal, Dr, Judith Ruskay Rabinor speaks to all those who are looking for a thoughtful and original perspective— people who suffer, their loved ones and therapists, too.
