Sound, sensitive advice for overcoming an eating disorder

Anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, exercise addictions . . . these disorders can be devastating, but they are in no way unbeatable. Therapist Carolyn Costin, herself recovered from anorexia, brings three decades of experience and the newest research in the field together, providing readers with the latest treatments, from medication and behavioral therapy to alternative remedies.

Whether you are living with an eating disorder or you are a loved one or professional helping someone who is, The Eating Disorder Sourcebook will help you:

  • Recognize and identify eating disorders
  • Discover and work with the underlying causes of an eating disorder
  • Make the right choices when comparing treatment options
  • Understand what is expected in individual, group, and family therapy
  • Know when outpatient treatment is not enough and what else can be done
