Amy Pershing, LMSW, ACSW, founder of the Bodywise® Binge Eating Disorder Recovery Program and Clinical Director of The Center for Eating Disorders in Ann Arbor, MI, has over 30 years of clinical experience and serves as a consultant and trainer for clinicians treating BED nationwide. A founding member and past chair of the Binge Eating Disorder Association (BEDA) and recipient of the association’s 2016 Pioneer in Clinical Advocacy Award, Amy is a sought-after international lecturer, keynote speaker and author. She is the author of Binge Eating Disorder: The Journey to Recovery and Beyond (Routledge/Taylor and Francis, 2018) and has authored several articles, chapters and tv/radio/podcast segments on BED recovery, relapse prevention, weight stigma, and Attuned Eating and Movement (AEM). She is the creator of “Hungerwise™,” a comprehensive outpatient treatment program for ending chronic dieting and weight cycling, offered jointly with St. Joseph Mercy Health System in Michigan and nationally online. In addition, Amy maintains a private practice in Ann Arbor, MI. Based upon her wealth of knowledge and experience, Amy has developed a comprehensive treatment approach for BED that is strengths-based, incorporating Internal Family Systems, somatic trauma techniques, Attuned Eating and Movement (AEM), and a “health at every size” philosophy. In BED recovery herself, Amy offers a compelling perspective to treatment that makes her both accessible and relatable for both professionals and clients alike.

"Required reading! Through personal stories and professional expertise, Amy and Chevese offer a powerful psychological and weight-inclusive understanding of Binge Eating Disorder. It's imperative that professionals understand how to help their clients who struggle with out-of-control eating, and that the millions of people who struggle with BED lose the shame and blame that can accompany this diagnosis. Binge Eating Disorder offers these solutions."
—Judith Matz, LCSW, co-author of The Diet Survivor’s Handbook and Beyond a Shadow of a Diet
"As pioneers in the BED community, Amy and Chevese bring an extraordinary combination of professional and personal wisdom to this field. With profound awareness of the many intersecting factors that can negatively impact recovery, they effectively dispel entrenched myths and offer extensive information and resources for advocacy and support, and ultimately, hope for healing. This book is a gift to anyone seeking freedom from BED and a valuable resource for those who care for them."
—Anita Johnston, PhD, author of Eating in the Light of the Moon and director of ‘Ai Pono Eating Disorder Programs, Hawaii
