Empower yourself! When does disordered eating become an eating disorder, and is this caused by genetics or our culture? How do I choose a therapist or treatment program, and are there alternative treatments? How can I help a loved one who has an eating disorder? From broad topics such as these to specific questions on laxative abuse, exercise, dental erosion or medications, 100 Questions & Answers About Eating Disorders is a simple, quick reference guide to give those who suffer and their loved ones the authoritative, practical information they need. As a clinician who recovered herself, author, Carolyn Costin, imparts critical information derived from her 30 years of experience treating eating disorders. Readers will be given a basic understanding of the problem, as well as the tools and resources to get more help. Included in the text is additional "insider" information from others suffering from eating disorders. This book is an invaluable resource for family members, friends, or anyone struggling with the medical, psychological, or emotional turmoil of this frightening condition. Book jacket.
