The Expert on the Eating Experience: Dr. Linda Harper Releases Her Latest Guide on Best Self Eating
EVERGREEN PARK, ILLINOIS, August 25th – Author and clinical psychologist Dr. Linda R. Harper will release her fifth book, Eat! Rediscover Your Best Natural Relationship with Food, on August 31st, 2014 from CAP Publishing, a division of Consultants in Applied Psychology and H.A.R.P.E.R. Helper.
Linda R. Harper has been a clinical psychologist for over thirty years in the Chicago area. During that time, she has witnessed a number of her clients’ struggles with dieting. Although Dr. Harper enlightens readers who may have a troubled history with eating, she is not simply providing a guide to help individuals diet. She is advocating the move away from dieting, or socially accepted deprivation as she refers to it, and instead encourages restricted eaters to listen to their inner wisdom when it comes down to deciding what to eat. As her book’s tagline aptly states, “If you are looking for a best-selling diet book, this is NOT it.”
Eat! will follow in the wake of the success of Dr. Harper’s previous titles on individuals’ relationships with food and eating, including her 1998 title The Tao of Eating, published by Innisfree Press. Already, Dr. Harper’s five-step guide has been met with a great deal of positive feedback from individuals who have spent their lives struggling with dieting and with their own eating behaviors and habits.
Known for his research on anorexia nervosa and self-injury, psychotherapist and author of eight books Steven Levenkron, says the following of Dr. Harper’s latest title: “A wonderful perspective on eating! Takes the conflict out of one of the most conflict-ridden subjects.” He highly encourages others to read her book. Thomas Moore, psycotherapist and New York Times bestselling author of fifteen books, authors an illuminating foreword, affirming Dr. Harper’s book is “full of wisdom.”
Dr. Harper presents a new way of looking at the eating experience by giving others the tools they need for practicing self-care, beginning with their body and the way they see food. Eat! is designed to enhance life’s authentic journey by listening to the wisdom within you when deciding what and when to eat, the way we were meant to engage in our eating experiences.
