"Counselling for Eating Disorders in Women" focuses on women whose eating patterns have generated side-effects on other aspects of their lives such as work, health and family. Women with problems connected with over-eating, under-eating, and poor eating form a significant proportion of counsellors' lists with a distinctive set of problems and challenges. This book adopts the unique approach of the "Living Therapy" series, using fictitious dialogue to illustrate the person-centred approach enabling the reader to experience directly the diverse and challenging issues surrounding patients. This is difficult to achieve with conventional text books. This book is invaluable for trainees and experienced counsellors, members of support organisations, and women suffering from eating disorders, their friends and families.
