Back cover copy

Step-by-step - the proven path to recovery from bulimia nervosa and binge-eating

'Written in a language that is both clear and pragmatic; an informative account of this stressing affliction. It is eminently readable by patients and will serve as an invaluable aid to treatment.' Michael Strober,
Professor and Director of the Eating Disorders Program, UCLA

One in twenty women in the Western world experiences bouts of uncontrolled binge-eating and many of these are suffering from the eating disorder bulimia nervosa. Stringent dieting and making yourself vomit after overeating are common features of bulimia nervosa, as are depression, anxiety and feelings of worthlessness. This illness causes great distress to sufferers and those who care about them, but in recent years there have been real advances in treatment.

Peter Cooper's sympathetic and highly acclaimed guide gives a clear explanation of the disorder and the serious health issues that can result from it. This third edition:

· Describes the treatments available today and sets out a step-by-step recovery programme
· Gives friends and family a much clearer understanding of the illness and its treatment
· Has been found in independent clinical research to be of substantial benefit

PETER COOPER is Professor of Psychopathology at the Winnicott Research Centre at the University of Reading and a Fellow of the British Academy. He holds Honorary Professorships at the University of Cape Town and Stellenbosch University in South Africa.

Overcoming self-help guides use clinically proven techniques to treat long-standing and disabling conditions, both psychological and physical.

Series Editor: Professor Peter Cooper
