Summary
"The Anorexic Mind represents an attempt to understand the states of mind which underlie the serious eating disorders of anorexia and bulimia. Compulsive over-eating or binge-eating is also considered, particularly as it relates to anorexia. The ideas in the book have developed through two distinct areas of professional practice. The first is Marilyn Lawrence's own direct clinical work as a psychoanalyst, treating adult patients who suffer from eating disorders. The second is as a learning resource to the staff who run specialist units caring for patients with eating disorders." "The perspective of the book is psychoanalytic in as much as it assumes that mental functioning is unconscious as well as conscious and that as human beings we only very partially understand our own motivation. However, The Anorexic Mind is not written exclusively for psychoanalysts; on the contrary. an approach which helps practitioners to find meaning in the illnesses of their patients is likely to be helpful to mental health workers from a range of different backgrounds."--Jacket
