Overcoming Chronic Fatigue in Young People provides an effective evidence-based, step-by-step guide to managing and overcoming chronic fatigue. The highly-experienced experts Katharine Rimes and Trudie Chalder, present an accessible and practical manual aimed at young people, with downloadable material (available online) to support recovery. The book also includes a guide for parents and a helpful resources section. It is recommended for any young person struggling with chronic fatigue, as well as parents and professionals.
Currently, there is no other evidence-based self-help guide available on chronic fatigue aimed at young people. This innovative book contains detailed advice for tailoring a fatigue recovery programme to the individual and shows the health professional how to do this. Topics covered include: Sleep, exercise, coping with stress and school. Based on cognitive behaviour therapy, a treatment approach supported by research evidence, Katherine Rimes and Trudie Chalder have used this guide in specialist CFS / ME service for many years with positive results as reported by both patients and parents.
