#555 – A Jungian Understanding of The Fat Complex with Cheryl Fuller PhD

Cheryl Fuller PhD is a Jungian psychotherapist living on the coast of Maine. She is passionately interested in depth psychology, psychotherapy, feminism and fat studies. Her new book, The Fat Lady Sings, weaves these threads into a tapestry of personal experience, critique of psychoanalytic theory and treatment of fatness, all in the context of the war on obesity. Hers has been the life of a fat woman which naturally feeds her interest in the lived experience of fat people, the absence of such voices in discussions of weight, and in the effects of fat phobia and what she terms the cultural fat complex.

Fuller has published essays on Medea, fat politics, and embodiment. She holds a BA in Psychology from Duke University, an MA in clinical Psychology from the University of Connecticut, and a PhD in Jungian Studies from the Union Institute
