It will enable the reader to better understand why some people with eating disorders behave as they do. It looks at the latest research, and new and emerging treatments are discussed, as well as established treatments and their success rates. In addition to conventional treatments medical, psychological and therapeutic the book considers complimentary therapies that may support an individual's recovery. It also includes nutritional information, to help those who are frightened of food, because they feel out of control around it, or are afraid of being overweight. There is a chapter on adjusting to change, recovery strategies and a look at why pro-ana communities are unhelpful, suggesting healthier social groups and past-times. The book contains extensive case studies of people who have battled with anorexia and bulimia, looking at some of the things that may have played a role in their disease, such as abuse, bullying, loneliness, low self-esteem, unhappiness and pressures to conform."--Publisher description."@en ;
