"... clearly written, from a wealth of practical experience, and does indeed provide the sufferer with a 'survival kit' on the road to recovery. It can be recommended not only to sufferers, but to professionals dealing with these patients, and to family and friends who wish to become involved in the recovery process." - Anne Ward, Behaviour Research Therapy
"... an excellent book, and a model for self-help manuals. The basics of bulimia nervosa and other binge eating disorders are explained in clear and simple language." - Padma de Silva, Sexual and Marital Therapy
Easy to read and illustrated with many real-life examples, this book addresses the specific problems faced on a daily basis by bulimia sufferers.
The only self-help programme that has been evaluated in a randomised controlled trial, it provides detailed step-by-step advice for dealing with this condition.
Unlike other less problem-oriented books currently available on the subject, this book concentrates on the key behaviour changes necessary for the sufferer to achieve a happier and more fulfilled life. Theory is closely interwoven with practice and the book draws together real problems and solutions experienced by hundreds of sufferers.
