Body States: Interpersonal and Relational Perspectives on the Treatment of Eating Disorders
By Jean Petrucelli
Body-States: Interpersonal and Relational Perspectives on the Treatment of Eating Disorders–Edited by Jean Petrucelli brings together experts in eating disorders to illuminate how interpersonal and relational theorizing enriches and deepens their work with their patients. Bridging the gap between theory and practice, symptom and recovery, these selected papers illustrate how an embodied experience must be a felt experience. While this collection is made up of  a diverse group of thinkers and clinicians, they have in common the aim of enabling clients to inhabit their bodies as their own, rather than alien entities. In this collection, Petrucelli convincingly demonstrates how interpersonal and relational treatment addresses eating problems, body image problems, and “problems in living.”
