            Ever since its original publication in 1988, Surviving an Eating Disorder has been considered a classic. One of the first books to offer effective support and solutions for parents, spouses, friends, and all others who are the -silent sufferers' of eating disorders. This revised ...and updated edition ensures that the book will continue to help readers overcome feelings of confusion, helplessness, and anger, take new actions that will encourage the recovery process, understand what to expect from the eating-disordered person, and what kind of support is available.aDrawing on the authors' extensive experience in counseling individuals, groups, and families, and illustrated throughout with vivid case examples, Surviving an Eating Disorder will help answer all your questions, large and small: - Why is this happening?- What do I say when she asks if she looks fat?- How can I help him with his diet?- Should I suggest therapy?- Will things get better?aIn Part I, -Gaining Perspective, ' the authors discuss the psychological components of eating disorders as well as the family contexts in which they develop. aPart II, -Confronting the Problem, ' offers guidance for bringing the problem out into the open, getting the person into treatment, and coping with the possibility of anger and denial. aIn Part III, -Using New Strategies, ' the authors how how the situation can be made better-now-by disengaging from the eating disorder (with practical suggestions for handling such daily issues as mealtimes, money, and requests for advice) while reestablishing a relationship with the eating-disordered person based on issues other than food and weight. The guide concludes with names and addresses of national organizations and a list of suggested readings.

            A paradigm-shifting study of neurodivergent women--those with ADHD, autism, synesthesia, high sensitivity, and sensory processing disorder--exploring why these traits are overlooked in women and how society benefits from allowing their unique strengths to flourish. As a successfu...l Harvard and Berkeley-educated writer, entrepreneur, and devoted mother, Jenara Nerenberg was shocked to discover that her symptoms --only ever labeled as anxiety-- were considered autistic and ADHD. Being a journalist, she dove into the research and uncovered neurodiversity--a framework that moves away from pathologizing abnormal versus normal brains and instead recognizes the vast diversity of our mental makeups. When it comes to women, sensory processing differences are often overlooked, masked, or mistaken for something else entirely. Between a flawed system that focuses on diagnosing younger, male populations, and the fact that girls are conditioned from a young age to blend in and conform to gender expectations, women often don't learn about their neurological differences until they are adults, if at all. As a result, potentially millions live with undiagnosed or misdiagnosed neurodivergences, and the misidentification leads to depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, and shame. Meanwhile, we all miss out on the gifts their neurodivergent minds have to offer. Divergent Mind is a long-overdue, much-needed answer for women who have a deep sense that they are different. Sharing real stories from women with high sensitivity, ADHD, autism, misophonia, dyslexia, SPD and more, Nerenberg explores how these brain variances present differently in women and dispels widely-held misconceptions (for example, it's not that autistic people lack sensitivity and empathy, they have an overwhelming excess of it). Nerenberg also offers us a path forward, describing practical changes in how we communicate, how we design our surroundings, and how we can better support divergent minds. When we allow our wide va

            A paradigm-shifting exploration of neurodivergent women-those with autism, ADHD, synesthesia, and other sensory processing differences-offering a timely, provocative examination of why these traits are overlooked in women and how our society can benefit from allowing their unique... strengths to flourish. As a smart, successful, Harvard and Berkeley-educated writer and devoted mother, Jenara Nerenberg didn't discover her autism and ADHD until well into her adulthood, after it had already taken a huge toll on her personal and professional life. Being a journalist, she dove into the research and discovered neurodiversity-a movement which seeks to stop pathologizing `normal' and `abnormal' brains and start embracing the variety of mental makeups we all have. But we can't accept what we don't recognize, and when it comes to women, sensory processing disorders including autism, ADHD, and synesthesia are often overlooked, masked, or mistaken for something else entirely. Between a flawed system that focuses on diagnosing younger, male populations, and the fact that women are conditioned from a young age to blend in and conform to gender expectations, women often don't learn about their condition until they are adults, if at all. As a result, millions live with undiagnosed or misdiagnosed neurodivergence, and the misidentification leads to depression, anxiety, shame, and low self-esteem. Meanwhile, we all miss out on the gifts their neurodivergent minds have to offer. Divergent Mind is a long-overdue, much-needed answer for women who have a deep sense that they are different.
