Book Description

12 May 2004 New Harbinger Self-Help Workbook
Leading researchers in acceptance and commitment therapy suggest to readers struggling with anorexia that strategies to control their disorder are themselves problems. Instead, they use the techniques of acceptance and commitment therapy, or ACT, to teach how better to cope with out-of-control emotions and thoughts. The aim of this book is to teach anorexia sufferers how to redirect the drive for thinness to achieve more healthful goals.

Product Description

Amazon Review

Each chapter of The Anorexia Workbook: How to Accept Yourself, Heal Your Suffering and Reclaim Your Life presents bulleted preview points at the beginning with clear content and plenty of self-tests, exercises and worksheets to get you involved. "You will learn to accept and live with the uncontrollable thoughts and feelings that haunt you about your weight, and you will learn to take charge and move your life in directions that you value" promise the authors, who are both specialists in treating people with anorexia. They use the ACT (acceptance and commitment therapy) philosophy: accept the thoughts and feelings, and commit to actions that take charge of your life in a positive way.

You'll learn to understand that what you've been doing isn't working, deal with emotions and thoughts more effectively, identify your life values, start living a life that reflects those values, and cope with barriers. The overriding point is that you can act before you "get things right in your head." The style is warm, simple, and accepting--no stern lectures or commands to eat. The workbook has large pages and is well laid-out and easy to follow. --Joan Price, Amazon.com

Review

"Michelle Heffner and Georg Eifert have done a wonderful job in applying ACT to anorexia. I believe that the practical exercises and advice in this book can certainly help people who want their lives no longer be ruled by anorexia. In particular, this book offers an avenue of hope and encouragement that is not only ultimately humane but completely different from other scientifically-driven approaches to the problem of anorexia. I have no doubt that it will transform the lives of many people." --Frank W. Bond, Ph.D., senior lecturer of psychology at Goldsmiths College, University of London

5.0 out of 5 stars helpful 26 Jan 2007
By goldilocks - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book was helpful. It did not cure me. What it did do was help me realize that I didn't want to keep going in the path I was in. After having the eating disoder for many years and refusing help the entire time, thats actually an accomplishment. I would recommend this book to anyone who is on their last leg and not sure what to do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anorexia Workbook 8 Sep 2008
By Paulette G. Peters - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This workbook has been such a big help in my struggle with anorexia. I am seeing a therapist and we are working through this book together chapter by chapter. I didn't think that any book could really help me, but this one did. It has given me strategies to take back control of my life. It truly has been a lifesaving book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Helped me gain control and seek help 25 Feb 2007
By MR - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
As someone with an "Eating Disorder Personality" I found myself in a difficult place before this book. I felt I couldn't talk to anyone because I wasn't fully anorexic but I knew that I was having thoughts. I found this book after skiping sevrel meals and i bought it . I can't tell you how much it helped me . It not only helped me with the way I was feeling but also to understand that I could talk to someone about it and not feel ashamed. I decided to see someone and helped me step away from the "edge" as I call it . It was really helpful to me and hopefully someone else out there. SO from someone who wasn't really an outsider but not really an Insider I recomend this to anyone who is dealing with an E.D. or cares for someone who is.

4.0 out of 5 stars A book of hope help and reassurance 4 Feb 2006
By Mrs. L. Grocott - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Written in such a way that it helps people to understand how to overcome the addiction of anorexia and its hold on one's life. In doing that it makes it possible to change one's mindset instead of just covering up the layers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life Changing 5 Mar 2011
By Rianna Haines - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has honestly changed my life. I am 20 years old and I have suffered from anorexia for years. I started reading this book when I weighted 86lbs. It allowed to me to see that I wasn't alone and it taught me a whole new way of looking at my thoughts and body. It doesn't keep repeating the same old lectures that you hear from everyone else. I would recommend this book to everyone including teenagers because honestly the "Tombstone" exerise finally makes anorexia real, it makes you think about what your doing to your body.
