Many books sit on a bookshelf collecting dust whereas a few get worn down with bent pages, highlights, and bookmarks for future reference because the book provides the right info in a deliverable manner. The Eating Disorder Trap: A Guide for Clinicians and Loved Ones by Robyn Goldberg will be the latter book for the health care provider who wants to work with eating disorders yet unsure how to proceed. I foresee this book becoming the groundwork for an eating disorder clinician’s foundation along with supervision
Robyn helps us understand that recovery is not the client or clinician’s burden rather a collective cultural issue that must also be challenged in order to support eating disorder recovery for all bodies. This book is inclusive of all genders and fat positive. This is THE book for any dietitian, doctor, therapist, or health care provider in training who may not necessarily even specialize in eating disorders It has the power to help future providers have a basic healing infrastructure to help people get access to the care they need. And that’s the change our culture so desperately needs.
