Today, Kathy welcomes Stephanie Ng in part 1 of a 2-part podcast where Kathy and Stephanie talk about eating disorders, socio-cultural factors, and Chinese-American clients.
Today, Kathy welcomes Karen Samuels, Ph.D, and their topic is eating disorder recovery using the support of sisterhood at middle age. We know eating disorders isolate people but in this episode we see how support and sisterhood can bring people together and significantly help in the recovery process.
Today, Kathy welcomes Iris Ruth Pastor, and their conversation is called “let’s talk about recovery.” Iris suffered from bulimia for 46 years and she shares her story. The steps Iris took led to her recovery and we applaud her belief in herself and recovery. We need to stress that everyone’s recovery story is different and there are some aspects of Iris’s journey that were right for her that we would not recommend for others. We strongly believe the best way to recovery is through work with eating disorder professionals.
Today, Kathy continues her conversation with Dr. Michael Levine on the things he’s learned about eating disorder prevention from unexpected places. We encourage you to really think about the things Michael discusses in this episode, and how we all can do more individually and as members of society to work on eating disorders prevention.
Today, Kathy welcomes Dr. Michael Levine for part 1 of a 2-part episode entitled “things I’ve learned about eating disorder prevention from unexpected places.” These episodes are longer than our normal episodes and I will say 2 things about that – 1, it’s Michael Levine and I know him well enough that I can joke with him and say that Michael is verbose, and then some, hence the longer episodes. And 2, it’s Michael Levine, so we listen to everything he says, and learn from him and appreciate how verbose he is, and how generous he is with his wisdom, his knowledge, his time, and his kindness to everyone in our field.
