Food, My Frienemy

Details

A difficult relationship with food affects not only adolescents but also adults. It is often the symptom of a deep pain that rises from problems of control, low self-esteem, guilt and shame, which can derive from critical or traumatic events experienced in the course of life or at a young age.

This book helps the reader to understand the difficult relationship with food and the original causes of the symptoms that maintain it. The author recommends the text as a basic tool kit with the essential elements to increase knowledge, awareness, motivation and shows the best path to find a definitive solution with EMDR psychotherapy. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapeutic treatment authenticated by several researches. Mostly used for treating trauma, EMDR is a complex and global approach not only to work on past traumas but also to improve individual resources and self-esteem.
