EDMONDS, Wash.--()--Recovered anorexic Emily Wierenga has collaborated with top eating disorder professionals, including best-selling author Gregory Jantz, PhD, founder of The Center for Counseling and Health Resources, and Dena Cabrera, PsyD to release her latest book, Chasing Silhouettes: How to Help a Loved One Battling an Eating Disorder (September 25, 2012; Ampelon Publishing).
Chasing Silhouettes is the story of a broken family that finds healing through anorexia nervosa. As a homeschooled pastor’s daughter, Emily’s story reflects the truth that even good people need redemption, and that eating disorders can affect all homes, even the seemingly perfect ones.
In addition to a stirring personal narrative, Chasing Silhouettes also features practical advice from some of the nation’s top eating disorder experts, heartfelt prayers for when hope runs thin, and chronicles the stories of others who have battled, and overcome, an eating disorder. Targeted at parents and loved ones as well as clinicians newer to the field of eating disorders, Chasing Silhouettes provides a road map through the four stages of eating disorder recovery (Recognizing, Reacting, Recovery and Renewal) to help navigate this tricky territory and guide decisions made along the way.
Early reviews suggest Wierenga has hit her target, and the book is being released in both paperback and digital format through Ampelon Publishing today, September 25, 2012.
