Break free from the vicious cycle of anorexia nervosa
Anorexia nervosa affects both men and women, of all age groups and social classes, internationally. For both the sufferer and the friends and family who care for them, the impact of the illness can be devastating. However, it can be treated effectively using cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).
This self-help book provides support to battle this notorious and widespread eating disorder and has been used effectively with many patients in clinical settings. Using CBT techniques, you will learn to:
Understand the many forms and causes of anorexia nervosa
Challenge negative thinking and behaviour
Improve your body image
Develop coping strategies for the future
These clinically proven tools form a complete recovery programme, with practical exercises and worksheets.
Overcoming self-help guides use clinically proven techniques to treat long-standing and disabling conditions, both psychological and physical. Many guides in the Overcoming series are recommended under the Reading Well scheme.
