Grief and Eating Disorder Treatment

Chelsea Albus is a primary therapists that helps individuals work through the grieving process. The article notes how loss affects people based on diverse religious and cultural levels. The backgrounds are important to gaining an understanding on how the person responds to their recent loss. Some people restrict eating or avoid emotional expression.

This process can help the client memorialize the death of the loved one and move forward.
