In a society where most people have access to a healthy, nutritious diet, why do so many – especially girls and young women – develop eating disorders that can lead to illness, psychological anguish, organ damage and death?

In this thoughtful, comprehensive book, Dr. Jim Kirkpatrick and Dr. Paul Caldwell offer expert advice on the causes, effects and treatment of anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge-eating disorder and a host of less familiar eating disorders.

Topics include:
  • early warning signs of a developing disorder
  • practical tips on how families can cope
  • genetic predisposition
  • feeding disorders of infancy and early childhood
  • complicating factors such as pregnancy, diabetes and substance abuse
  • medical and psychological treatment options
  • the recovery process
Eating Disorders

Supplemented by case studies and personal insights from people recovering from these problems, Eating Disorders is an intelligent, sensitive guide to a complex and disturbingly common problem.
