Anorexia, Murder, and Suicide

Front Cover
Taylor & Francis, Oct 15, 1997 - Psychology - 224 pages
Anorexia nervosa, sexual murder and suicide are among the most difficult and alarming conditions that any therapist is likely to encounter. This book presents exceptional insight and profound understanding into these three major areas of clinical concern.



It draws upon the stories of three patients in psychotherapy or psychoanalysis, who recovered from their severe disturbances, and who have been followed up for over twenty years since the end of their original treatment.



The implications for the management of these patients are discussed in detail and some surprising findings are presented. Included is a comprehensive review of the literature on anorexia and sexual murder, and a discussion with many clinical examples of the author's extensive experience of the handling of suicidal patients.
