About the Author:

Dr Christine Halse is an Associate Professor in Education and Chief Investigator of the multi-disciplinary, multi-method Australian Research Council project, Multiple Perspectives of Eating Disorders in Girls, at the University of Western Sydney, Australia. Her research and publications on anorexia nervosa have addressed biographical, clinical and ethical issues. Dr Anne Honey is Senior Researcher with the Multiple Perspectives of Eating Disorders in Girls project at the University of Western Sydney and has a background in mental health research and occupational therapy. Dr Desiree Boughtwood is a counselor. Her doctorate, titled Anorexia Nervosa in the Clinic, examined teenage girls' experiences of hospitalization for anorexic nervosa.

Review:

This book is a valuable resource that achieves that rare blend of theory research and professional practice and is highly readable and accessible. (Debate)

The book poignantly follows the accounts of the teenage girls, siblings, mothers, and fathers as they attempt to make meaning of and come to terms with anorexia in real time, rather than a post recovery perspective. The structure of the book is unique in that the family biographies are the scaffold upon which pertinent information and issues about anorexia are present... Inside anorexia has general reader appeal and is an easy read from start to finish. The book is of particular interest to anyone at the beginning stages of learning about complexities of this disease. It may also offer support and some illumination to patients and families who are at the beginning of their journey with this illness. (Psychiatric Services)

The full extent of anorexia and its effect on families is very well presented, so I think that anybody who was struggling with the complexity of the issues surrounding anorexia might well feel less isolated after reading this book... Inside Anorexia is worth a read. (Healthcare Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal)
