Description
Summary:"Bulimarexia: The Binge/Purge Cycle provides important facts on adolescent danger signals, socialization and the family, the challenges of the college years, pros and cons of drug therapy, and nutritional counseling." "Boskind-White takes issue with therapeutic approaches that emphasize deep-seated problems and instead focuses on ways to strengthen positive attitudes and practical coping skills. With the dangerous "thin is never thin enough" message still pervading our culture, she discusses the persistent epidemic in eating disorders and the urgent need to give them new attention as a social issue, especially for women." "Boskind-White includes case histories of bulimic and anorexic women in their own words - sympathetic peer-group voices to encourage women who have begun treatment or are considering it. She also describes school and college programs that are finding new ways to help their students who have eating disorders."--Jacket.
