Do you or does someone you know, suffer from an eating disorder such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa or a less typical set of symptoms? The most effective, evidence-based treatment for adults with eating disorders is cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT). This book presents a highly effective self-help CBT programme for all eating disorders, in an accessible format. It teaches skills to sufferers and carers alike. This book is relevant to any sufferer, if: • You are not yet sure about whether to seek help • You are not sure where to find help • Your family doctor or others recommend that you try a self-help approach • You are waiting for therapy with a clinician, and want to get the best possible start to beating your eating disorder
