In Eating Disorder Recovery Treatment What Comes First: Bingeing or Feelings?

Recently a new therapist asked me, "Do you try to get your clients to diminish their bingeing behaviors from the beginning of therapy or do you explore their feelings first? I know there are differing views on this."

When I heard this question, several points of equal value, in my opinion, arrived simultaneously in my mind concerning therapy work with eating disorder patients.  Please understand that these considerations are simultaneous.

My first thought was that I don't try to 'get' my clients to do anything. I want them to heal and develop the capacity to live a fulfilling and satisfying life. But what that means to them and how they specifically accomplish that falls into the realm of their personal values, decision making and evolution.

Eating Disorder Recovery With or Without Understanding from Family or Friends

You, like the butterfly, can find the right support and nourishment you need.

She can look so good or so happy that people who love her and think they know her well, cannot get past what they wish to see and hear. They can also be too afraid to believe that her descriptions of personal pain might be true.

If that eating disorder person is you, you may be in a situation where many well-meaning people in your life do not take your anguish seriously.
