Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Gina M. Caputo, MA, LCPC (Cermak Health Services)
Description: This book uses a different approach to explore the disorder anorexia and its treatment. The client tells her story as she knows it, and the therapist hers. Literature summation is presented at the end of the book, including illustrations by the client, a glossary and references.
Purpose: The client initially wanted to tell her story in order to achieve closure and the therapist believed the process could be beneficial. The process itself, however, resulted in much more than a book and the insights gained by both client and therapist were much more than they anticipated. Objectives included providing an approach to anorexia from two different points of view and life after anorexia. The objectives are noble and accomplished.
Audience: It is hoped that this book proves helpful to mental health professionals, hospital staff, private clinicians, school counselors, and pediatricians as well as young women suffering from similar problems, their parents, and other family members. The book is very easy to read and honest. The author is very credible since she is the therapist and her background and experience in child clinical studies is appropriate.
Features: The book is covers three areas. Parts I and III portray the client's own story of her life, illness, and therapy; Part II is the therapist's account of the treatment; and Parts IV, V, and VI contain a summary of current literature, the therapist's approach, and guidelines for other clinicians. There are illustrations by the client throughout the book and a glossary.
Assessment: The book is very useful due mainly to its unique presentation. So often clinicians fall prey to the therapeutic rut. This book reminds us of the client's experience and also gives a "happy ending" after a long and arduous trek through therapy for client and author. Laypersons will find this book easy to read and understand. I have quite a collection of books on eating disorders and this is a welcome addition.
