About the author (1988)

Marilyn Duker is a specialist in the process of recovery from anorexia nervosa/bulimia. Over three decades, and with a wealth of experience in working with sufferers at every stage of the illness, she has integrated theory and practice to establish a unique therapeutic approach. She has provided courses for relatives of sufferers and training for a variety of professional groups, including teachers, pastoral workers, nurses, dietitians and GPs.
Roger Slade obtained his doctorate from the University of Bristol for his work on anorexia nervosa/bulimia and is also author of The Anorexia Nervosa Reference Book. One of the first to apply modern psychological research methods early in the 1970s, his original thinking is distinctive for its clarity and cohesiveness and continues both to inform and to inspire.
