I am very excited to announce that my first book will be published July 22nd, 2019!
The Clinical Guide to Fertility, Motherhood and Eating Disorders: From Shame to Self-Acceptance, 1st Edition
This book is a comprehensive guide to addressing, working with, and healing from emotional struggles related to fertility and eating disorders.
Covering the emotional, psychological, and physical impact of anorexia nervosa, bulimia, and binge eating disorder, this book explores the lived experience of numerous women and men who have endured the experience of eating disorders, fertility, and parenthood. It delves into research on medical complications that can affect fertility, attachment, the experience of shame, and adjustment to the postpartum period, and offers clinical tools for therapists to use to support clients from a weight- and body-neutral perspective. Those who read this book will come away with a renewed sense of hope for recovery and healing from serious mental illnesses, and the notion that the value of having a family may be stronger than the eating disorder itself.
The only book of its kind, The Clinical Guide to Fertility, Motherhood, and Eating Disorders will be useful to practitioners, therapists, and scholars alike.
