Getting her to eat

In my new blog, Brave Girl Eating, for Psychology Today, I wrote about how we got our daughter to eat when she was in the grip of anorexia. Read it here. I hope it's helpful to those of you who are struggling to help a child or teen with anorexia.

The Diane Rehm Show

Thanks to Lynn Grefe, CEO of the National Eating Disorders Association, and Ovidio Bermudez, M.D., for taking part in the Diane Rehm Show yesterday with me. The subject was eating disorders, and we talked a lot about family-based treatment (the Maudsley approach) as well as Brave Girl Eating. It was an inspiring conversation and I am grateful to all who took part.

You can listen to the segment here.

Thanks to Shannon Russell (alias Atchka) for a good interview about anorexia, Brave Girl Eating, evolution, and other enthralling subjects. You can listen up here.

Russell blogs on a site called Fierce Fatties. It's worth checking out.

I'm happy to report I did not drop the F bomb in this interview. But, like, I really have to, like, stop saying like all the time. Like, know what I mean?
