An invaluable addition to the bookshelves of anyone working with clients suffering from eating disorders. Every chapter contains something of interest. This informative book is brought to life with interesting cases clearly showing the various processes involved in clients' recovery. It is certainly a stimulating read and I came away from it with lots of new ideas. -- Counselling
This substantial book makes a convincing case for the use of arts therapies with people with eating disorders. It makes informative and persuasive reading for therapists. I recommend the book as a welcome addition to the literature on therapy with people with eating disorders. -- Therapeutic Communities
This is most attractive book, well produced, it is a daunting task for a reviewer to do justice to the rich variety of the work described. This is one of the most interesting books on eating disorders I have seen in recent years. It deserves to be widely read and I am sure it will contribute to the much-needed debate between the arts therapies and psycho-analysis. -- British Journal of Music Therapy
The book includes illustrations and poems by Elise Warriner whose own experience with serious food problems led her to communicate her experiences through word and image. Much of her work is focused on trying to make people look at food in a different light. The book's illustrations include Table Setting shown on the cover, which illustrates the frustration of anorexics when faced with the necessity of eating. The table setting is made of liquidised paper and fruit skins. Fr those working within this field I would suggest that this book is a necessity. -- British Journal of Occupational Therapy
