Recovery Stories: Connection and Advocacy

00:0000:00

This weeks podcast is a conversation with Aimee Becker on recovery, connection, and advocacy

 

Aimee Becker is the Chief Operating Officer of the Gaudiani Clinic. She spent 10 years dedicating herself to developing the infrastructure for Monte Nido & Affiliates. Inspired to join the field through her own recovery, Aimee joined Carolyn Costin when Monte Nido was only a six bed residential facility, as the Program Coordinator. Progressing to Director of Operations and then Chief Compliance Officer, Aimee oversaw Monte Nido & Affiliates’ expansion into six states. In addition to her strong commitment to superb programmatic and operational functioning, Aimee developed a deep engagement with the therapeutic values and processes inherent to the world of eating disorder treatment. Through years of leading groups on gender and sexuality at Monte Nido, Aimee further developed her fundamental belief in client-centered goals, a narrative approach to therapy, and the idea that the person is not the problem, the problem is the problem. She is developing training on queer competency for eating disorder professionals, highlighting non-binary constructs of gender and sexuality and non-assumptive models of therapeutic engagement.

Podcast: Study shows diet talk and behaviour passes down through generations

00:0000:00

In this podcast Tabitha Farrar talks to Jerica Berge about a new study illistrating how diet talk and encouragement to diet can be passed down through generations

Parent Encouragement to Diet From Adolescence Into Adulthood May Cause Intergenerational Harm

Study: http://www.practiceupdate.com/content/parent-encouragement-to-diet-from-adolescence-into-adulthood-may-cause-intergenerational-harm/65474

  • In this longitudinal study 556 adolescents were surveyed when in school and again after 15 years in adulthood and/or parenthood to evaluate the association between parental encouragement to diet in adolescence and health outcomes in adult life. Significant association was observed between parent encouragement to diet in adolescence and an increased risk of overweight or obesity, dieting, binge eating, unhealthy weight control behaviors, and lower body satisfaction in adulthood. In addition, the authors noted an intergenerational transmission of encouragement to diet in the home environment.

  • Clinicians should inform parents about the potentially harmful and enduring outcomes associated with encouraging their children to diet.

Recovery Feast Eating

00:0000:00

Saying goodbye to 2017, and looking back over the year and what I have learned. In this podcast I talk about what I call recovery "feast" eating, which is more commonly referred to as "binge" eating. Looking at eating a lot of food as a highly appropriate response to restriction. 

Why it is normal and appropriate to eat a lot of food when you are in recovery from anorexia

Why restriciton makes us desire to eat large amounts of food

The problem with psychoanalysing eating — especially recovery eating!

Event Restriction

00:0000:00

In this podcast Tabitha talks about what she refers to as "event restriction." 

Event restriction is when you anticipate eating more or resting at an event or time in the future, and therefore try to create a "buffer" by restricting more or compensating more via exercise in preparation. 

Event restriction never works. Most people find that is actually makes eating and resting harder, so ironically you struggle even more when you actually get to the big day. Most commonly people event restriction in preparation for Christmas and the festive season.

Anorexia recovery while managing a young family.

00:0000:00

Recovery from Anorexia is often a time of heightened anxiety and stress. Managing recovery while looking after a young family is a reality for many adult sufferers. In this podcast Tabitha talks to an adult in recovery, Erin, about managing recovery with young children. 

About Erin:

I am 36, and have lived in Colorado my entire life. I currently live in Highlands Ranch and have two children, 11 and 6. I have been married for 15 years. I studied sociology, philosophy and women's studies in college. I have struggled with issues around food and body image since I was a preteen. My eating disorder became severe at the age of 33. I want to help people of all ages, backgrounds, and weights understand that they can indeed develop this illness and that it is a life threatening disorder that needs to be taken seriously. I hope my experience can help others know they are not alone if they are struggling to recover while also being a parent.
