Inside Anorexia: The Experiences of Girls and their Families
Self Help - Sufferers Resource Book 224 pages
Inside Anorexia presents personal stories of teenage girls with Anorexia Nervosa and their families to provide insight into the nature of the illness. The stories explore the mental and physical aspects of the illness, and the impact on families and relationships. Personal stories are combined with up-to-date research and facts from diverse disciplines such as psychology, health, medicine, and social and cultural studies. The stories were collected as part of a study conducted in Sydney, Australia, that involved in-depth interviews with girls with Anorexia Nervosa that were undergoing treatment from a hospital or mental health service, and their families.
