In eating disorder treatment or disordered eating recovery, additional resources such as podcasts and books can offer valuable support and insight to individuals on their recovery journey.

Podcasts hosted by mental health professionals or individuals with lived experiences can provide a sense of connection and validation, fostering a deeper understanding of eating disorders and the recovery process.

Likewise, books can offer insight regarding the common roots of disordered eating, cultural and historical context, and personal narratives that may validate your personal experience with body image and food.

By combining therapy with supplementary resources, individuals are afforded a more comprehensive toolkit to navigate the complexities of their eating disorder, promoting self-awareness, empowerment, and resilience. In between counselling appointments, it can be helpful to have books and podcasts you commonly engage with, to maintain momentum and support throughout your healing process.
