When an eating disorder (ED) is involved, the problems caused by miscommunication can have serious consequences. A remark from a parent that is intended as positive encouragement could act as a trigger and a criticism from someone with an ED might really be a cry for help. This book aims to improve communication between someone with an eating disorder and their friends and family by revealing the eating disorder mind set and decoding language choices. Using examples of real-life, everyday conversations, ED says U said translates the highly charged language of anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder and unravels the emotional chaos that can surround sufferers and those who care for them. It provides clear examples of the common pitfalls and gives invaluable advice about how to help in defusing the triggers and regaining the personality swamped by the illness. A unique resource of information on EDs, this book will be essential reading for everyone who has been affected by eating disorders: sufferers, carers, family and friends, together with health care professionals treating people with eating disorders.
Eating disorders are everywhere, from anorexics to bulimics, binge eaters to yo-yo dieters. An awful lot of people today feel miserable around food and unhappy in their bodies. But it doesn't have to be this way. Recovering from an eating disorder is a long, difficult road, and you need guidance along the way. There are many books about eating disorders available. This book is different. This book isn't about your eating disorder: it's about you. This book doesn't focus on food and eating and weight issues: these are merely the symptoms, not the problem. Instead, this book offers practical, insightful, gentle guidance that can help you discover the underlying reasons for your eating disorder and how you can truly heal.

Using Writing as a Therapy for Eating Disorders: The diary healer uses a unique combination of evidence-based research and raw diary excerpts to explain the pitfalls and benefits of diary writing during recovery from an eating disorder. In a time when diary writing remains a largely untapped resource in the health care professions, June Alexander sets out to correct this imbalance, explaining how the diary can inspire, heal and liberate, provide a learning tool for others and help us to understand and cope with life challenges. The book focuses on the power of diary writing, which may serve as a survival tool but become an unintended foe. With guidance, patients who struggle with face-to-face therapy are able to reveal their thoughts through writing and construct a strong sense of self. The effects of family background and the environment are explored, and the therapeutic value of sharing diaries, to better understand illness symptoms and behaviours, is discussed. Using Writing as a Therapy for Eating Disorders will be of interest to those who have recovered or are recovering from eating disorders or any mental illness, as well as therapists, clinicians and others working in the medical and healthcare professions.

Caring for a Loved One with an Eating Disorder: The New Maudsley Skills-Based Training Manual provides a framework for carer skills workshops which can be used by anyone working with these conditions. Based on the successful New Maudsley Model, which equips carers with the knowledge and skills needed to support those with an eating disorder, the book consists of two sections which will help facilitators to deliver skills workshops to carers. The first section provides the theoretical background, while the second uses exercises to bring the New Maudsley Model to life. The skills workshops provide a much-needed lifeline, giving carers an opportunity to meet in a safe, non-judgemental and confidential environment, and to learn to recognise that changes in their own responses can be highly beneficial. With session-by-session guidelines and handouts for participants, Caring for a Loved One with an Eating Disorder: The New Maudsley Skills-Based Training Manual will be of aid to anyone working with someone coping with these conditions.
For the first time in my life, I finally see purpose for all I have endured with God's amazing Grace. I have a compassion for others who are hurting. Not necessarily just widows, but all hearts. I have a sense about people that I can look into a crowd of faces and sense they are hurting. I do not know the hurt they are experiencing, but I feel their hurt. I often speak to various groups about grief or other similar topics and I look across a room and can just feel the look on their faces by searching their hearts. I cannot explain it. Some often refer to it as the gift of discernment. I often refer to is a curse because after I experience that, it drains me emotionally and physically. But I feel that God uses those times to keep me fresh and true to my feelings and where they come from in order to help others. There is no handbook for women who suddenly find themselves on the downward spiral to widowhood. Building a Ministry of Comfort and Compassion isn't a guideline, but a source of hope and encouragement on the journey into and through widowhood, as experienced by author Elaine Cook.
