Expert, Dr. Mary Tantillo, author of ground breaking Multifamily Therapy Group for Young Adults with Anorexia Nervosa...Reconnecting for Recovery (2021), describes eating disorders as diseases of disconnection. Dr. Tantillo explains that the eating disorder wants to disconnect people from themselves (one's genuine thoughts, feelings, needs and bodily states) and from one other. She has decades of experience leading Multi-Family Groups for people with eating disorders and their families. Dr. Tantillo believes that the relationship is greater than the sum of its parts and says that there is more power in a relationship than in an individual. She believes that the family is a huge part of the solution and puts up to 7 patients and their families in the same room every week to heal through connection. Join us as she describes the powerful healing work that occurs in her Multi-Family Groups as patients and their families learn how to nourish and empower the we in their relationships. Addiction wants to separate the person with the addiction from loved ones. Naming these disconnections, learning to separate the person from the addiction (in this case the eating disorder) and learning how to stay connected to self and others in spite of the eating disorder are discussed. Dr. Tantillo teaches certain emotional and relational skills that can help the person and the family heal and recover from eating disorders. This episode can be helpful for any person suffering from an eating disorder and anyone who cares about them.
