Abstract

Inside Anorexia provides valuable insight into the experiences and challenges faced by teenage girls with anorexia and their families. The authors use the stories of individuals and their families as a starting point for understanding the issues associated with anorexia including: physical effects, the effect on siblings and parents, related psychiatric problems, causes and treatment. Useful fact boxes in each story provide an overview of current knowledge from a variety of disciplines as well as new findings from the authors' own research into anorexia nervosa. Inside Anorexia is an accessible resource for anyone who wants a better understanding of anorexia nervosa. It will be an informative guide for health professionals as well as for people with anorexia and their families. Copyright © 2008 Christine Halse, Anne Honey, and Desiree Boughtwood.
