Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jennifer J Halvorson, MS, RD (Chicago Center for Clinical Research)
Description: This is a self-paced workbook targeted for those with eating disorders to help them take an active role in their treatment process. The workbook can be used alone or in conjunction with counseling.
Purpose: The purpose is to offer a person with an eating disorder a way to further explore his or her relationship with food. The educational material and the thought-provoking exercises provide a means for analyzing current eating behaviors and offers guidance on making behavior changes. This is an important contribution to this field, and the authors clearly meet their objectives.
Audience: This well designed workbook is geared for eating disorder sufferers who desire additional self-help therapy; however, mental health professionals will find the exercises helpful to compliment therapy discussions. The authors, who have extensive experience in this field, provide a credible knowledge base for this book.
Features: The workbook offers easy to understand educational material on major issues affecting those with eating disorders. Following the educational topics are insightful exercises that help explore these issues on a personal level. In addition, the book is filled with personal stories from recovered eating disorder clients who share their painful struggles in the uphill battle to recovery. The resources and references at the end of the workbook, which include useful Internet sites, offer the reader other avenues to seek information.
Assessment: This is a very useful workbook for those with eating disorders and for mental health professionals to use in conjunction with counseling. It is a valuable resource that provides an opportunity for a client to explore personal issues and offers useful tools to be used in a self-paced fashion.

    I've waited a long time for a book like this

    I have quite a library of eating disorder books as I continue my quest for recovery, and I have never found a book as helpful as this one. It is helpful to go at recovery at your own pace. This book helps you to explore many underlying issues to your eating disorder in a safe and understandable way. I recommend it to anyone that is struggling with an eating disorder.
