The authors' decade-and-a-half collaboration with 'insiders' has yielded fresh answers to these life and death questions: How does anorexia/bulimia seduce and terrorize girls and women? Why is anorexia/bulimia successful in encouraging girls and women to unwittingly embrace their would-be murderer? How can such a murderer be exposed and thwarted?

This book details a unique way of thinking and speaking about anorexia/bulimia. By having conversations with insiders in which the problem is viewed as an external influence rather than a part of the person, these therapists show how to bring the tactics of anorexia/bulimia into the open, expose its deceptions, break its spell, and encourage defiance of its tyrannical rule. These innovations enable insiders, professionals, and loved ones to unite against anorexia/bulimia rather than allowing it to pit a professional or loved one against an insider, and the insider against herself. Coercion is sidestepped in favor of practices that are collaborative, accountable and spirit-nurturing. The groundbreaking discoveries outlined in this book will provide new options, inspiration and hope, not only for those who suffer at anorexia's hands, but also for their loved ones and healthcare professionals.
