Episode 26: Eating Disorders During Coronavirus with Thom Rutledge

Woman working at home

Episode description:

Author and psychotherapist Thom Rutledge joins Peace Meal to discuss how people with eating disorders can prioritize recovery during the coronavirus pandemic. While “Ed”—the eating disorder—may try to co-opt the current cultural anxiety and changes in food, exercise, and environment for his purposes, Thom explains how we can intervene. With the support of others, we can reclaim our power and use the situation as an opportunity to strengthen our recovery efforts.

Thom Rutledge, LCSW, is the author of Life without Ed (with Jenni Schaefer), as well as Embracing Fear, The Self-Forgiveness Handbook, and more. Learn about Thom and his work at thomrutledge.com, and find him on Facebook and Instagram.
