#75: How to Respond when your child is gaining weight with Alison Ross
IN THIS EPISODE
Alison Ross is a licensed psychotherapist and neurofeedback practitioner specializing in eating and body image. She founded Non-Dieting Health in Agoura Hills, California, a center offering therapy, neurofeedback brainwave training, and group support for people struggling with disordered eating and body image. She is also the author of Non-Dieting: How to Love Your Body and Be Healthy in Diet Culture, available for sale on Amazon. Alison’s work is her passion. It is inspired by her recovery from disordered eating and body image struggles. Whether working with clients, writing, speaking, or lending her voice to the body-positive, non-dieting social justice movements on social media, Alison’s mission is to help people break free of shame-based mindsets about food and their bodies. And to support them in creating the internal conditions that help them navigate a tricky food and diet culture with their health intact.
We discuss topics including:
- Alison’s own struggles as an adolescent as it was not normalized
- Helping parents navigate their own discomfort through their kids growth curve
- How pathologizing can be harmful
- As a parent the importance of “just listening”
