Product Description

Product Description

Anorexia nervosa is a potentially fatal disorder that is notoriously difficult to treat and provokes feelings of great frustration in carers, families and friends. Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist, Dr Agnes Ayton FRCPsych, offers a new perspective, bringing together what is currently known and scientifically verified with her own ground-breaking work combining psychotherapy with nutritional support. Providing sufferers and carers with a knowledge of the full range of treatment options empowers them to make informed choices that can be tailored to the individual's needs. To assist them, Anorexia Nervosa – hope for recovery: focuses entirely on anorexia and other eating disorders associated with being significantly underweight; emphasises nutrition, especially what is known about the physical and psychological effects of starvation and the process of recovery from these; offers dietary 'prescriptions', menu plans, and recovery strategies; integrates treatment options, showing how the individual can achieve a balance. This is a practical book helping sufferers and carers to make informed choices that can change the lives of all concerned for the better.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found this book so easy to dip in and out of to help with my everyday practice as a mental health nurse. I now work with eating disordered adolescents and this book has helped me no end. I would recommend it to anyone, families, friends or professionals wanting help and guidance with understanding anorexia nervosa.

This really is a good book, appropriate for clinicians and those affected by eating disorders. A great book to dip in and out of, this will really help to enhance my practice as a health professional. I have read a lot of books on this subject, this is my favourite book so far.
