Course: 8 Keys to Recovery from An Eating Disorder
by Carolyn Costin and Gwen Schubert Grabb
If you work with clients who restrict their eating, binge, purge, excessively diet or weigh themselves, exercise compulsively, or engage routinely and obsessively in any other food or weight related behaviors, this book is for you.
The two authors have their own histories of battling eating disorders. Interweaving personal narrative with the perspective of their own therapist-client relationship, their insights bring an unparalleled depth of awareness into just what it takes to successfully beat this challenging and seemingly intractable clinical issue.
With great compassion and clinical expertise, Costin and Grabb walk readers through the ins and outs of the recovery process, describing what therapy entails, clarifying the commonly associated emotions such as fear, guilt, and shame. Most of all, they provide motivation to seek help if clients feel discouraged, resistant, or afraid.
While not a substitute for formal therapeutic care, this book offers a penetrating and unique look at what it means to really overcome an eating disorder, how the authors did, how they have helped thousands of others do it, and now they hope to help other clinicians and their clients too.
