Description From Author:
A Survivor’s Guide to Anorexia, is an autobiographical account of my ten-year battle with anorexia nervosa. I wrote the book with the hope that it would give individuals currently suffering from anorexia (and other eating disorders) insight, courage, and hope. An eating disorder need not be a life sentence. People do recover and go on to lead happy, healthy, full lives. In my account, I’ve shared words of wisdom and details of my own recovery process with the hope that others may benefit from my insight. REVIEW: The book will be an eye-opener to patients and their families and should be required reading for anyone treating a person with an eating disorder. It will also emphasize to mental health providers and insurance companies that there are no short-cuts to treatment which often takes a very long time. Her description of the ingredients that make for effective treatment are a valuable contribution to the understanding of what contributes to recovery.
Anatomy of Anorexia is a tremendous tool for families: now more than ever, early diagnosis and treatment, and family participation, are crucial in helping the anorexic. Preeminent therapist Steven Levenkron demystifies this life-threatening disease and shows how the millions of girls and women who are afflicted with anorexia can be helped–and can look forward to rich and productive lives.
What makes Claude-Pierre’s treatment of anorexia and bulimia revolutionary? Perhaps it’s that the astonishingly high success rate of even the most chronic cases at Claude-Pierre’s Montreux Clinic (only sufferers near death who have not been helped by doctors and hospitals are admitted) defies the common misconception that eating disorders are incurable. Claude-Pierre has made a personal commitment to dispel this damaging myth. Having cured her own two daughters of anorexia, you might say hers was a vested interest. The Secret Language of Eating Disorders reveals the details of Claude-Pierre’s unique program.
