The intersection of clinical expertise, lived experience, and compassion is where therapeutic magic, otherwise known as sound, evidence-based care that seeks to liberate not pathologize, happens. A must-read for every mental health provider who works with and cares about the well being of Black women and their self-actualization.

This groundbreaking work starts a very necessary conversation that not only expands our understanding of recognition, assessment, and treatment of eating disorders among Black women, but deepens our understanding of the core nature of eating disorders for all as disorders rooted in experiences of marginalization and voicelessness.

Research outcomes blend beautifully with poignant case studies and tools for treatment. More than just a 'what to do' book, this is a heartfelt treatise on how to 'feel', to inhabit another's world, to broach issues of race and identity, and build the therapeutic alliance crucial to providing patients with the quality treatment they deserve.
