Episode Description

Kathryn interviews clinical expert Jennifer J. Thomas PhD and author Jenni Schaefer on their book “Almost Anorexic: Is My (or my Loved One’s) Relationship with Food a Problem?” Tired of hearing people say "I wish I had a touch of anorexia", Thomas and Schaefer teamed up to show the truth about this psychiatric disorder. Drawing on the latest research and Schaefer's own personal recovery from anorexia, Almost Anorexic identifies common warning signs for the disorder and tips for building a healthy relationship with food. Kathryn also interviews Ann W. Smith LMFT on her book “Overcoming Perfectionism: Finding the Key to Balance & Self-Acceptance”. We are all familiar with sayings like "practice makes perfect" and "failure is not an option", but do these outlooks carry any danger? Smith shares her 30 years of experience with compulsive patterns and the impact perfectionism can have on individuals and family. Smith has been featured on Dateline NBC, NPR, and in The Wall Street Journal.
