From the chapters that we have read so far in this book, I would have to say that the family’s dysfunction is a product of Kitty’s eating disorder. One main reason why I say that is because I really agree with the quote in the book from the scientific world that states: “Correlation does not equal causation.” Along with that, it is hard to figure that out after anorexia has already started because most people don’t go into a therapist before they start having an eating disorder, so the therapist has a very limited view of what has happened before this disorder started. Now you can also say that because this book is from the mother’s point of view, she made it seem like before this happened that there wasn’t anything going on in their family that they would consider as dysfunctional. However, her definition and others definition of dysfunctional can be very different. The author does give a lot of good examples of different studies that have been done on the brain of those who have had anorexia and are recovering.
