Overview

For people concerned with eating disorders and the psychotherapists who treat them. This is a gift book that can be given to anyone troubled by foodand weight issues, family and loved ones, and therapists.

Using an unique approach—a dialogue between a client and therapist—this book offers a spiritual dimension to healing from eating disorders. Presented in an appealing gift book format, the intimate dialogue will help readers open their hearts and minds to explore the nature of the inner self and the importance of self-love.

The client, a woman with bulimia, is a composite character based on patients Ms. Fodor has helped during her fifteen years as a psychotherapist. Their conversation, in a question and answer format, touches on the most basic human questions and truths, such as: Why do I have this illness? Who am I to think that I deserve more? How does life become different when we awaken to this deeper level? Is anxiety a natural state? What exactly is a transformation?

    Excellent Book!

    I have never read such an eye-opening book in my entire life! I now see the relationship between low self-esteem, perfectionism, and poor coping strategies with compulsive eating. I have suffered for so long and now I am coming out of it! Thanks to this eye-opening book. Thank you Viola!

    This book discusses seeking your 'inner self' to cure eating disorders. The author dedicates a whole section to 'quiet time', in which you are supposed to think of nothing, and in this 'quiet time' the patient is supposed to find their inner self and their purpose in life. The author never explains how this is supposed to treat eating disorders.
