Communication without Words illustrates how the study of infant
observation can facilitate working with unverbalized aspects of the
eating-disordered child. This part of the child is shown through the
child's gestures, glances, play, drawings and dreams, accompanied by the
emotional states received through use of the psychotherapist's
countertransference. Work with the non-moving, silent child aged 7 to 18
has received little attention in the literature on eating disorders. There
has been much more focus on young people in psychotherapy who speak
about their feelings. The thesis is by published works.
