You, Me, Empathy - Episode 26: Evolution of Therapy and Eating Disorder Myths with Tony the Therapist


On Episode 26 of You, Me, Empathy, Tony and I explore the evolution of therapy, maladaptive coping mechanisms, and the myths and origins of eating disorders.

Plus, Tony shares why we need specialization in mental health treatment and research, and why theorists challenging the mental health status quo is a good thing. I also talk about my anorexia and I attempt to discover its origins (endless running until my bones hurt, fitness mom, soccer). And Tony and I both talk about the physical, emotional, and cognitive impact of eating disorders like anorexia, bulimia, and body dysmorphia.
