Abstract:

A new understanding and approach to eating disorders from a renowned expert. Nearly 5 percent of Americans face an eating disorder--and eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness. Long considered an affliction of young women, they are now common among young men, middle-aged women, and even children as young as five. This is a health crisis of epidemic proportions. This book offers hope in the battle against eating disorders through a radical new therapy technique pioneered by Dr. Sacker, who has been treating patients with eating disorders for thirty-five years. Filled with firsthand accounts from patients, family members, friends, and others, it provides what patients and their families desperately need: a therapeutic model that heals.--From publisher description.
