Dr. Glenn Waller is a clinical psychologist and professor at the University of Sheffield, UK. He is a past-president of the Academy for Eating Disorders, and is currently president of the Eating Disorders Research Society. Dr. Waller has decades of experience as a clinical researcher evaluating and evolving cognitive behavioral treatments for individuals with eating disorders. In this episode, he challenges therapists to refrain from adopting what Paul Meehl called the “spun glass theory of mind” when treating patients. Instead he urges us to develop true therapeutic alliances that are not only compassionate, but also, brave. This episode is filled with clinical wisdom not to be missed.
