The widely updated second edition of Eating Disorders: Journey to Recovery Workbook helps those struggling with eating disorders in their recovery, guiding the reader through a greater consideration of body image, compulsive exercising, and personal and societal relationships based on Prochaska’s Stages of Change Theory. The workbook explores complicated issues having a direct effect on the eating disorder, including trauma, depression, gender identity, abuse, and the media. Updated to include the acknowledgement of binge-eating disorder, selective eating, and avoidant restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID), this second edition encourages self-paced learning and practice adjunct to one-on-one and group therapy from two seasoned clinicians in the treatment of eating disorders.
