Since its first publication in 1983, this volume has been a source of information on the dynamics of eating disorders, written by two therapists who have long specialized in treating them. This book provides information on adolescent danger signals, socialization and the family, physiological effects, the challenges of leaving home, drug therapy and nutritional counselling. For this edition, new material has been added on brief outpatient therapy and the impact of new therapies and new drugs. Also included is a chapter on intensive psychotherapy with anorexics. With material on the dangerous "thin is never thin enough" messages pervading modern culture, the author discusses the alarming increase in eating disorders and explains why they need new attention as a feminist issue.
