Read the Interview

"Required reading! Through personal story and professional expertise, Amy and Chevese [Pershing and Turner] offer a powerful psychological and weight inclusive understanding of Binge Eating Disorder. It’s imperative that professionals understand how to help their clients who struggle with out of control eating, and that the millions of people who struggle with BED lose the shame and blame that can accompany this diagnosis. Binge Eating Disorder offers these solutions." – Judith Matz, Psychotherapist, Speaker and Author, The Diet Survivor's Handbook
"As pioneers in the BED community, Amy and Chevese bring an extraordinary combination of professional and personal wisdom to this field. With profound awareness of the many intersecting factors that can negatively impact recovery, they effectively dispel entrenched myths and offer extensive information and resources for advocacy and support, and ultimately, hope for healing. This book is a gift to anyone seeking freedom from BED and a valuable resource for those who care for them." – Anita Johnston, PhD, Author of Eating in the Light of the Moon, Director of ‘Ai Pono Eating Disorder Programs, Hawaii
"Amy and Chevese share their perspectives from decades of experience with Binge Eating Disorder, from survival strategies to recovery; both personal and clinical, solo and community. Their wisdom makes this book rich, rare, and soulful. May we all have access to the communities led by Chevese and access to therapists like Amy." – Deb Burgard, PhD, FAED, Licensed Psychologist, Private Practice
