Dr. Anita Johnston is an eating psychology pioneer, storyteller, the co-founder of the Anorexia & Bulimia Center of Hawaii, developer of Hawaii's first in-patient eating disorders treatment program at Kahi Mohala Hospital, supervisor for the International Association of Eating Professionals ...
... and the author of Eating in the Light of the Moon: How Women Can Transform Their Relationship With Food Through Myths, Metaphors, and Storytelling.
She's a powerful champion of women struggling with disordered eating. The conversation ranges from imbalances in our psyches, to what disordered eating is trying to say to us.
What it means to live in a "fat-phobic culture" is part of this episode, as well as how recovery is really a process of transformation.
This was such a rich conversation that Anita and Melanie ended up recording another show ... look for it to drop next week.
Dr. Anita Johnston is a keynote speaker at the upcoming US Journal Santa Fe virtual conference.
31st Santa Fe Conference: Integrating Spirituality, Compassion, and Mindfulness in Mental Health and Addiction
