After years of working with clients with eating disorders, I am keenly aware of the challenges at each stage of the process of the recovery journey. One piece of feedback that I continually hear from people is how challenging it is to integrate back into the community. The eating disorder, although a protective function, comes at a high cost: loss of connection to the body, loss of identity of ones authentic self, struggle for connection to ones feelings and connection to others, as well as the obvious medical issues that make eating disorders the psychiatric condition with the highest mortality rate.
The journey to recovery is a long one, and persons in recovery deserve support in every stage of the process. Thus born: Recovery Through Performance.
