Join us for an episode with consummate eating disorders clinician, Judith Banker. As founder and Executive Director of the Center for Eating Disorders in Ann Arbor since 1983, Judy has a breadth of experience and a depth of wisdom that few therapists achieve in a lifetime. In this episode, she observes the rising rate of eating disorders across the age spectrum - with many younger and older individuals presenting for treatment compared to when she first began in the field. Judy reflects on the process of therapy, how the work has become more challenging and complex over the years, the rewards of the work, and the need for self-care, which she finds in music as a performing songwriter. This insightful conversation about psychotherapy and eating disorders is filled with tremendous expertise that is matched by warmth and compassion.
