Research suggests that a staggering 80 per cent of women are dissatisfied with their bodies, and increasing numbers of people struggle with Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) and unhealthy attitudes towards food. Eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia and compulsive eating all bring their own distressing social and health problems. This new edition of Coping with Eating Disorders and Body Image explains how a distorted body image may arise, and what to do about it.

- the importance of self-esteem and how to boost it
- alcoholism and its link with eating disorders
- tackling negative thoughts
- dealing with anxiety
- ways to improve body image
- regaining a healthy attitude towards food
In this warm and well-researched book, Christine Craggs-Hinton says that with support and determination, it is possible to recover from eating disorders and re-establish a good relationship with your body.
