Medical visits can be frustrating for dysregulated eaters and people on the higher end of the weight spectrum, as well as for the professionals who treat them—the weigh-ins, lectures about diets and exercise, and the discouragement felt by patient and practitioner alike. Written by two seasoned professionals who’ve recovered from their own eating problems, this book teaches psychological and success strategies that promote healing conversations between providers and patients. It teaches:

  • Why shame and blame have no place in discussions about eating and weight.
  • Why empathy, active listening, compassion and self-compassion are crucial skills for patients and practitioners to help them achieve their respective goals.
  • How practitioners can feel comfortable talking with their patients about their relationship with food and their bodies.
  • How patients can assert themselves and express their need to be heard and validated with health care providers.
  • Strategies for providers to get support for themselves and their patients to treat eating and weight concerns successfully.
