The Bulimia Workbook for Teens presents 42 exercises that will help you end the chaos of bulimia so that you can focus on becoming the person you really want to be.

The skills in this workbook will help you to: Build the strength to reduce your dependence on bulimia; overcome perfectionism and be kinder toward yourself and your body; manage difficult emotions without bingeing and purging; and transcend bulimia by accepting and loving yourself unconditionally.
It was a joy to work through the exercises in The Bulimia Workbook for Teens. I was particularly impressed with the spiritual and altruistic aspects of some of the material. Teens should feel very validated to have the worksheets in this book. Each one is like a supportive hug.
