|Are you interested in understanding Eating Disorders in a new light? If so, you’ll want to listen to this interview with Anita Johnston, a Psychologist, Storyteller, Educator and Author of “Eating in the light of the Moon,” a beautiful book available in 7 languages that uses storytelling, myths, and metaphors to help women transform their relationships with food.
In this podcast, we talk about how Anita founded the first Eating Disorders Treatment Facility on the Hawaiian Islands in the early 1980s, and how she uses the language of metaphor in the work she does. She describes the different ways people can cope with chaos by using food in disordered ways, and how they can move from chaos and disorder, and back to order again.
If you are interested in learning even more about Eating Disorders, Tracy has started a new YouTube Channel featuring information about Disordered Eating, and “bite-sized” excerpts from Podcast Interviews with Professionals in the Eating Disorder Treatment field.
