Pedro Pinera (class of 2016) reviews the art-neuroscience themed exhibition, “For The Brides of Ed: An Integrated Approach to the Treatment of Eating Disorders (Art Therapy, EMDR and Prescriptive Art), on display at the Edward G. Miner Library at the University of Rochester Medical Center. Pinero writes:

“The exhibit’s guest book is a testament to the positive dynamic at work between practitioner and client, with attendees describing the show as “evoking,” “touching,” and “liberating.” “Not only is it intriguing mixed media,” adds Susan Andersen, administrator of the URMC libraries and technologies, “but it also shares a cutting-edge modality for those who suffer from eating disorder.”

One important message Gershman and Stern drove home is “the value of visiting the exhibit if you suspect a friend or a member of the family to have an eating disorder.

“Seeing the young girls and women in the exhibit as role models, finding their bliss again can be a real game changer,” Gershman said.
