About this Item

"The treatment model I propose combines management of both the medical and the psychological aspects of the disorder and requires that the anorexic develop her own self-identity and a sense of her own competence and of control over her own life rather than over her body size. I believe that treatment requires a warm, personal approach and that a trusted and respected female role is essential for the anorexic to achieve cure." This book has 116 pages and is illustrated. The text contains NO internal markings whatsoever. Bookseller Inventory # 037436
