How Women Can Transform Their Relationships with Food Through Myth, Metaphor, and Storytelling

How Women Can Transform Their Relationships with Food Through Myth, Metaphor, and Storytelling
I was recently interviewed by Diana Hill of  Psychologists Off The Clock: A Psychology Podcast About The Science And Practice Of Living Well.

In this episode, Diana interviews Dr. Anita Johnston, author of Eating in the Light of the Moon: How Women Can Transform Their Relationships with Food Through Myth, Metaphor, and Storytelling. Dr. Johnston describes why myth and metaphors are effective strategies for uncovering and understanding the function and meaning of disordered eating. Dr. Johnston shares examples of metaphors she uses in her book to illustrate the complexities of eating disorder recovery. Dr. Johnston explores food as metaphor, the difference between emotional and physical hunger, and why recovery looks more like a labyrinth than a maze. Finally she offers resources for deeper study through her online course and support group at The Light of the Moon Cafe.

Key Points of the Podcast:

Do You Or Someone You Care About Struggle With Body Image Or Eating Concerns?
Are You Interested In How Storytelling And Metaphor Can Be Powerful Tools In Eating Disorder Treatment?
Are You Curious What Is The Function Of Disordered Eating?
