"Erasing ED" Treatment Manual & Film

Click here if you would like specific information about eating disorders.

Erasing ED (eating disorders), a documentary I wrote and directed, focuses on recovery from eating disorders. It is unique in that, while other eating-disorder documentaries focus on the failure to thrive, Erasing ED chronicles the prosperous recovery stories of five of my former clients. This film imparts hope and knowledge of eating-disorder recovery.

Erasing ED can be seen on PBS stations nationwide until 2018, and won two independent film festival awards. The emails and phone calls I've received from people who have seen the film on PBS and in film festivals reveal how much the focus on healing and full recovery has helped to instill hope."Erasing ED Treatment Manual"

The Erasing ED Treatment Manual is the companion to the film. The book is written primarily for healthcare providers and students; however, the language is entirely comprehensible for lay people. I co-wrote the manual with Sheira Kahn, MFT, and with contributions from Avril Swan, M.D.

Please visit to see the trailer, or for more information on the treatment manual or the film. To purchase the treatment manual or the film, please see the links below.


Recovery Story

Amber S. contacted Nicole Laby after watching Erasing ED. She was inspired by the film and had always wanted to give back to the ED community once her recovery became solid. This is one of many of Amber's wise and heartfelt contributions to the ED recovery arena.

"Self-hatred evolves into self-love. Fear & anxiety become confidence and living. I hope my story of my darkest days, spent barely surviving in my cage of Anorexia, can be the light and hope for the recovery of others. I was imprisoned and cagED by my eating disorder for 4 years. Today, I have my key safely tucked away, as recovery was that key...the key that's led me to being free. Living, loving, laughing....uncagED".
