We’ve all had those bad days when we feel like nothing fits, when we despair, if only I was skinnier here, if only I was flatter there. We try to brush them aside and forget about them to get thorough the day. But what if our negative body thoughts are not to be ignored but listened to and translated? When seen through The BodySelf lens, our body image thoughts can lead to more, not less, connection with ourselves. With curiosity and compassion, this book will help you decode your negative thoughts about your body and provide actionable and empowering steps towards a more constructive and connected relationship with your body.
Centered around vignettes of real clients, Body Image Inside Out shows you how to completely flip your mindset on your body. Our bodies and our feelings about them are completely unique to every person, so every chapter features journaling prompts and exercises to personalize your journey in finding comfort in and strength within your body.

Amy Gardner, MS, RD, CEDS, RYT, Owner of Metrowest Nutrition and Therapy and author of iMove, Helping Your Clients Heal from Compulsive Exercise (2021)
Body Image Inside Out is a valuable and much-needed resource to the eating disorder field. Whitney and Deb ingeniously integrate personal and professional experience while injecting just the right amount of humor to lighten the heavy topic of body image. I look forward to using the activities in the book with my clients.
Jeanne Catanzaro, Ph.D., author of Unburdened Eating: Healing Your Relationship with Food and Your Body Using an Internal Family Systems Approach
Drawing from their decades of experience with treating eating disorders, Deb Schachter and Whitney Otto illuminate the path to transforming your relationship with body shame, a notoriously challenging aspect of eating disorder recovery. Through a combination of thoughtful discussions, reflections, and exercises, Body Image Inside Out will help you shift from trying to push past your negative body image to regarding it as a meaningful source of information that will help you find the off-ramp from endless shame spirals. Clinicians will also appreciate this engaging, non-pathologizing workbook as a valuable resource that will facilitate their clients' healing.
Jennifer L. Gaudiani, MD, CEDS-C, FAED, Founder & Medical Director of the Gaudiani Clinic & Author of "Sick Enough: A Guide to the Medical Complications of Eating Disorders" (Routledge)
Schachter and Otto have provided us with a much-needed resource for helping heal body image distress. Using vivid real-world cases from their extensive clinical practice, plus practical exercises to individualize their points, they convincingly and compassionately show, while acknowledging broad inequities and stigmas, that body image challenges have much more to do with our relational, life, and emotional circumstances than they do with the actual body we find ourselves in. Readers will find this to be a deeply healing experience. I will be recommending this wonderful book to many of my patients!
