Description

Managing a dysfunctional relationship with food can be challenging. Thankfully, even when food and disordered eating have become the connection to self, it is possible to transform a conflict-ridden relationship with food to a more balanced, optimistic, and loving one. Within a comprehensive guide tailored for anyone struggling with eating challenges, Dr. Louise Parente relies on her extensive background as a certified eating disorder specialist and psychotherapist to provide a roadmap to permanent, positive change. Through a six-step process, Dr. Parente addresses the problem itself, the associated emotions that include shame, anger, fear, and anxiety; the inner-voices that regularly speak to us; and the subsequent belief and acceptance that follows this type of positive transformation. Included are case examples, introspective questions that encourage a look inward, and points to remember that highlight important takeaways from each chapter. Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow shares tips, wisdom, and a detailed roadmap that will help anyone struggling with eating challenges to both attain and maintain a healthy relationship with food.
