  • Joanna Poppink’s Healing Your Hungry Heart

    Praise for Joanna Poppink’s Healing Your Hungry Heart
    26 May 2011 Healing Your Hungry Heart: Recovering from Your Eating Disorder (9781573244701): Joanna Poppink MFT : Books

    “Finally—a book that speaks beyond the stereotype of eating disorders as the ‘little girl’s disease,’ reaching out to women who have lived with these devastating disorders for years, and offering practical, sound, and insightful advice on how to begin, and sustain, real recovery.”
    ~ Marya Hornbacher, author of Wasted: A Memoir of Anorexia and Bulimia

    “If you struggle with food or body image, Joanna Poppink’s Healing Your Hungry Heart is sure to help! Through her story and those of others, Joanna assures us that true recovery is both real and attainable. This is an important addition to the recovery bookshelf.”
    ~ Jenni Schaefer, author of Goodbye Ed, Hello Me and Life Without Ed

    “Joanna Poppink’s Healing Your Hungry Heart answers two questions I frequently hear from troubled eaters: ‘How do I begin my recovery?’ and ‘What can I do to sustain it?’ Her chapter on the warning signs of an eating disorder is especially helpful to those who aren’t sure if their relationship with food is unhealthy or not. Other chapters gently guide the reader in an exploration of what is needed to recover from deregulated eating—mindfulness, self-reflection and honesty, bona fide emotional nourishment, and daily practices for skill acquisition and moving toward true fulfillment. I would certainly recommend this book to my clients and students.”
    ~ Karen R. Koenig, LCSW, M.Ed., author of The Food and Feelings Workbookand Nice Girls Finish Fat

    “For three decades as a therapist, and now as an author, Joanna Poppink has used her personal experience with bulimia, insights into healing, empathy, and knowledge to help women recover from eating disorders. In this book, she shares stories from many of her former patients and covers diverse topics ranging from mindful contemplations on eating to an intimate discussion of sexuality. Practical, personal, and powerful!”
    ~ Leigh Cohn, coauthor of Bulimia: A Guide to Recovery, editor-in-chief of Eating Disorders: The Journal of Treatment and Prevention

    “This book offers a variety of valuable tools and practical ways for those with eating disorders to nourish both their bodies and their spirits. It also offers real solutions and hope for its readers.”
    ~ Christine Hartline, M.A., founder and director, Eating Disorder Referral and Information Center,

    "Eating disorders are a hidden personal ravishment in our Western culture. Those seeking a cure will find the pathway outlined in Joanna Poppink's book a strong companion on the road to recovery."
    ~ Jonathan Flier, MA, MFT; President of the Los Angeles Chapter of the Calif. Assoc of Marriage and Family Therapists
