Book Description

29 Oct 2009 Overcoming
Originally developed as a manual for anorexia patients at his eating disorders clinic in the Royal Edinburgh hospital, Chris Freeman's is the first self-help book based on cognitive behavioural therapy to counter this most notorious and widespread of eating disorders. It occurs most frequently among young women, but affects both men and women of all ages, in all social groups, internationally. The first part of this groundbreaking guide provides an introduction to the subject of anorexia nervosa and its treatment using cognitive behavioural techniques for therapists, sufferers and their families. The second part is a self-help programme for recovery based on the treatment, which the author has used in his work with hundreds of patients. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a now internationally established method of treating emotional disorders such as anorexia, depression and panic by changing negative patterns of thought. The Robinson series of self-help guides based on CBT, written by practising clinical psychologists, has proved itself accessible and highly effective, and the series' reputation and sales increase with every year.

4.0 out of 5 stars A helping Hand... 12 July 2002
By A Customer
This book has been very helpful for me, as I am trying to recover from anorexia. The book has actually helped me to admit to myself that I do have a problem, it outlined all the effects on health that the eating disorder has, and it also helped me to understand myself a bit more. When I read the book, I was totally amazed at the content, as practically everything that was described in the book, were the thoughts and behaviours that I have. I am glad that I decided to purchase this book, it was recommended to me by my counsellor who is currently helping me to to recover from this disorder.
This book is helping a lot, but it is still hard to return from this disorder, at least I have the book to consult everytime my thoughts and moods start to drop. It has and will remain very useful for me. I would recommend it to anyone who is having trouble admitting to themselves that they have a problem, not just with food, but a deep set, underlying psychological trigger that drove them to handle their distress through anorexia.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for people in all stages of AN 17 Mar 2002
By A Customer
A couple of years ago I developed mild AN symptoms which escalated about 6 months ago. I bought this book not really thinking my problem was that serious. After reading I discovered I have "clinical anorexia" verging on severe. The book described all of my symptoms and I realised I had a problem which needed fixed. The self help section of the book is excellent, and it has charts for recording your meals, and feelings. I would recommend this book to people with anorexia, and even to people who feel anorexia may be starting, as this book will help you avoid going down the same road as I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful Read 2 Oct 2004
Having suffered from anorexia nervosa & in the process of recovery I found this book to be extremely helpful, giving me an insight into the illness, ways to manage it/recover, figure out why it happened & the step forward etc. It is in no way patronising or forceful etc. Recommended to me/lent to me by a medical professional who is a former member of the Eating Disorders Team at the Institute of Psychiatry.
