Summary "Despite ever-widening media attention and public awareness of the problem, American women continue to struggle with anorexia nervosa in greater numbers than ever before. If you're trying to move past anorexia, making the decision to seek help is wonderful start. Based on a compassionate new model of psychotherapy called acceptance and commitment therapy, or ACT, this book builds on the idea that your past efforts to overcome anorexia may have caused you more harm than good. This approach works to free you from the judgments associated with anorexia, from the implication that there is something wrong with you. Instead, the book guides you through an approach that encourages you to mindfully observe difficult thoughts and feelings without reacting to them in a self-destructive way. Once you're in this more compassionate and receptive frame of mind, the step-by-step techniques in the book can help you redirect energy you used to spend on losing weight into taking positive action to heal both your body and mind."--Back cover.
