Feminist Relational Perspectives and Beyond:
Cultivating Hope in an Age of Disconnection

Many eating disorder clients are experiencing unprecedented levels of stress and anxiety in a polarized society where anger, prejudice, loss of civility, bullying, and threats to personal safety create an atmosphere of distrust and disconnection.
