Description

Eating disorders, which include anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and compulsive eating are conditions well recognized by the medical profession and the media, and are increasingly gaining understanding in the UK Church too. Yet while there have been Christian books written on people's experiences of "chaotic" eating, churches and individuals are crying out for a good resource book that will help them respond to the needs of those with eating disorders. Helena Wilkinson, herself an ex-anorexic, and now a counsellor, maintains that eating disorders serve a purpose in people's lives, and addresses the underlying factors - such as family background, pain and fear of responsibility - that contribute to eating disorders. The book is a practical and compassionate guide based on extensive personal experience. Other titles by Helena Wilkinson include "Puppet on a String" and "Snakes and Ladders".show more
