Parent review:

A book for all those experiencing living ED the Carers/Parents & Professionals.

However for the ""Insiders"" as the book calls those with ED there is a need for caution as parts of the book may initiate ED activity. ""For Insiders"" its one for when they are well into recovery & to be read with careful supervision from clinicians.

This book is written for those who have had an experience with an eating disorder. For those who have lived, or are living an eating disorder life experience or as the book describes them “insiders”. For those who have lived, or are living an experience as; significant others, parents & siblings. And for those who are in the professional therapy & treatment fields. As a father of a female insider I found the book to be a wonderful insight into the world of, as the authors describe it, “Anti anorexia/bulimia”. This Anti a/b world is the result of 15 years of experience & knowledge gathering by the authors. Anti a/b is a way of tackling those things, experiences,thoughts that lead to and feed an eating disorder experience. The authors have provided an experience of using narrative therapy as a way of developing an Anti a/b strategy and language to assist an insider to enter the recovery experience. The Anti a/b way of speaking, thinking and living provides a way for insiders, significant others & treatment professionals to enter and travel through the world of recovery in a collaborative experience. While parents, significant others & treatment professionals will be able to easily & comfortably read this book from start to finish, those living the experience (insiders) need to be aware that some parts of the book may initiate or invoke unwanted feelings and thoughts. Insiders should read this book with the assistance of their treatment professionals, their parents & significant others. A wonderful book, one that should be included in your list of good eating disorder books. One I believe should be in every treatment professional’s library.
