About the Book

Drawing on the evidence-based Internal Family System (IFS) therapy model, An Internal Family Systems Guide to Recovery from Eating Disorders: Healing Part by Part addresses the necessity of healing the eating disorder sufferer’s three groups of inner "Parts": the Mentors, the Advocates, and the Kids. In order to reconnect to their sense of Self and to achieve an inner balance necessary for recovery, the reader learns to address the unique needs of each of their "Parts." Written in an accessible style, this book combines compassionate examples from the author’s client cases and her own recovery with a step-by-step framework for identifying and healing the readers’ Parts using the IFS model. Each chapter ends with questions for the reader to answer to further enhance their personal recovery. An Internal Family Systems Guide to Recovery from Eating Disorders:Healing Part by Part will be essential to mental health professionals treating clients with eating disorders and to the clients themselves.

"Amy Grabowski combines her many years of experience treating eating disorders, her engaging writing style, and her innovative adaptations of the Internal Family Systems model to produce a very valuable book for clinicians and clients alike."

Richard C. Schwartz, PhD, founder of the Internal Family Systems Therapy model and author of Internal Family Systems Therapy

"Amy's book is a masterpiece! Her wisdom, compassion and passion flows through every page. An engaging and powerful book that leads the reader to the place where they can find the answers to a meaningful and joyful life—deep within themselves! A must read for anyone looking for a new, healthy and peaceful relationship with food. Extremely well-written and helpful, this book will change your life."

Linda Harper, PhD, clinical psychologist and author of Eat: A Guide to Discovering Your Natural Relationship with Food and Give: A Guide to Discovering the Everyday Joy of Giving

"Both seasoned eating disorder therapists and having recovered ourselves, Amy Grabowski and I know the value of helping our patients understand and transform the split off parts of themselves that have taken control. Amy guides readers in using an Internal Family Systems approach to distinguish their core "Self" from other split-off ego states that have usurped control. The book’s step-by-step process, case examples, and review questions assist sufferers in getting their core "Self" back in charge, which is key to lasting recovery."

Carolyn Costin, MA MEd, MFT, The Carolyn Costin Institute; author of 8 Keys to Recovery From an Eating Disorder, The Eating Disorder Sourcebook, Your Dieting Daughter, 100 Questions and Answers About Eating Disorders, and Yoga and Eating Disorders
