Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here is a personalized workbook that helps the reader explore the unique source and symptoms of her anorexia. Each chapter provides powerful, step-by step interactive elements designed to help the reader develop a picture of her symptoms and their underlying causes and then goes on to offer useful information and practical help for harm-reduction and an eventual end to anorexic behaviors. The first part of the workbook offers readers a good understanding of the physiology of starvation, as well as the medical risks of low weight and anorexic behaviors like purging and over-exercising. The reader answers important questions intended to give her an understanding of how anorexia is affecting her health and other aspects of life such as her relationships with friends and family. In the second part of Feeding the Starving Mind, , the reader explores her personality traits and how these traits make her vulnerable to starvation behaviors. She learns to connect her own anxiety about weight and shape to her particular anorexic behaviors. The reader develops a profile of her own eating disorder and what factors led to its development. It is thought that anxiety and fear are at the root of most cases of anorexia, yet anxiety is largely not addressed in competing books. Anxiety management is at the core of this effective and caring program.
