Eating Disorder Treatment: Feeding the Hungry Soul
Many patients in eating disorder treatment describe their disorder almost like a friend, says Dr. Jennifer Nardozzi, National Training Manager of The Renfrew Center Foundation. As the eating disorder becomes their primary relationship, their connection to self and others diminishes, heightening a sense of spiritual emptiness.
On this week's HealthyPlace Mental Health Radio Show, Dr. Nardozzi discusses the spiritual emptiness that deepens as eating disorders strengthen and why successful eating disorder treatment feeds what she calls "hunger of the soul."
