By Rachel Quast, M.A. 
 
Freedom from the Storm Within explains the combination of a person's experiences and personality and how they create core beliefs. It describes how those core beliefs manifest into eating disorder behaviors. Topics like eating disorder language, the eating disorder's function, psychological needs, significance, family dynamics and eating disorder temperaments are included. Reflection questions are included to help the reader integrate the information into one's daily life. Ms. Quast also includes personal thoughts and journals from her recovery from anorexia, bulimia, binge eating and exercise addiction to connect the reader to their own personal experiences. Due to the book's heavy emphasis on core issues (like anxiety, identity, thought patterns and early hurts) and core beliefs, it is beneficial for anyone working through any addiction. It contains over 200 pages and is a great resource for individuals, counselors, teachers and family members of a person experiencing an eating disorder.
