The workshop outlines the beginning of an Anti-anorexia practice with Ali Borden and Rick Maisel TC5 conference in 2004.
Ali Borden's clear insider/outsider perspective offers an invaluable up close interrogation of anorexia that turns the critical 'gaze' towards the dominant operations and language used to imprison and torture the body.
Rick Maisel reads a sample of therapeutic letters written by a woman involved with an Anti-anorexia narrative practice.
The following conversation is transcribed from a video-taped session with David, Rhiannon, Darren and Glen. This is an example of an Anti-Anorexic approach to therapy, which includes the client’s family and friends, and draws on the experiences other women dealing with Anorexia have already shared.
