In this episode we discuss trauma and eating disorders with Dr Sophie Reid. Sophie is a clinical psychologist, researcher and co-director of the Birchtree Centre of Excellence – a specialist centre in trauma, addiction and eating disorders in Sydney.
We also hear from professional actress, Sabeena Manalis, who you may recognise from her roles in Underbelly, Neighbours, and the Logie winning comedy series Housos. Sabeena tells her story of overcoming trauma, addiction and an eating disorder.
Often underlying an eating disorder is trauma. Trauma can also lead to a range of other mental health conditions. In this episode we discuss why that is, what exactly trauma is, what are the impacts of trauma, how can it be treated, and the goals of treatment.
