This book discusses a New Approach to treating those that suffer with eating disorders. Anybody that is suffering from an eating disorder needs to have unconditional love, acceptance, and forgiveness. They also need to learn how to forgive themselves, and forgive others that may have abused or harmed them. We do not believe force will change those suffering from eating disorders. Force does not work. It can drive the eating disorder deeper and deeper.
Instead of force, we at The Center, provide an atmosphere of acceptance where change can take place. We look beyond the eating disorder and reach into the person’s heart and see them as a person who needs love and acceptance. Hope, Help, & Healing for Eating Disorders was written with this philosophy.
