Bodies: What Exactly are These Bodies We are Trying to Live In?

Presented by The Eating Disorders, Compulsions and Addictions Service

Host: Jean Petrucelli, Ph.D.
Location: New York, NY
Venue: The William Alanson White Institute

Celebrated New York Times food critic Frank Bruni will poignantly take us on his personal journey with his body—one that was filled with torment and despair – and ultimately resolution. Susie Orbach, renowned psychoanalyst and social critic, will discuss our culture’s journey—one that’s filled with messages that denounce the existence of our bodies. Through these compelling talks, the next step of the journey will be questioned– what we can do now to heal our bodies, our selves and our cultures.
