Reviews about 8 Keys to Recovery from an Eating Disorder: Effective Strategies from Therapeutic Practice and Personal Experience (8 Keys to Mental Health) (7):

I can't say enough good things about this book! It's like a textbook for recovery from an eating disorder. Written by two professionals with personal experience in getting over eating disorders, it is a perfect combination of memoir and relevant stories from other patients, research-based explanations about the process and nature of the EDs, and thoughtful recommendations and tasks for recovery based on practice and science. It is incredibly helpful for anyone who wishes to get over their ED, and it can be useful for those who want to understand better what this ailment is about.

When a diet no longer serves you and a demeaning voice inside you takes control of your life, you need Carolyn Costin and Gwen Grabb. They are eating disorder therapists who know how to empower people to change their destructive eating habits. This book is a journey through the twisted food thoughts that make people think they're in control when they're not. It's all there: thin commandments, food rules, hunger games, food journals, conscious eating, scale addicts, exercise addicts, overeaters, undereaters, binge eaters, emotional eaters, rigid beliefs, emotional reasoning, perfectionism, privacy delusions, bulimia, anorexia and purging. These are tough issues to deal with, but with this book, a journal and the right help, there is a way out.

I cannot say enough about this fabulous book by Carolyn Costin and Gwen Schubert Grabb! This book is for; the person in eating disorders recovery, the caregivers whether they are parents, spouses, college health service professionals as well as therapists and others working in the field of eating disorders. The concrete steps and tools included are so powerful and vast, all of the years of experience of these two is immense and they have shared it here for you. There are indeed effective strategies for recovering from an eating disorder. I love using this book with the parents who are lovingly trying to guide their children to recovery.

Ideally it would be great to see this in the hands of everyone who has ever been diagnosed with an eating disorder. This gives me hope that the millions who have as of yet undiagnosed eating disorders will find help here and see that they too can recover. It is my number #1 recommended book for families looking to help a loved one recover.

Thank you Carolyn and Gwen for sharing your hard earned wisdom.

This book is a godsend to me as a mother whose daughter is recovering from anorexia and bulimia. It gives me such hope to read Gwen's detailed account of her own struggles with a serious eating disorder (many which parallel my daughter's experiences) and how she ultimately fully recovered to become a successful wife, mother, therapist, and author.

Because both Gwen and Carolyn suffered with eating disorders and went on to recover and become ED therapists, they offer unique insights and perspective in telling their story. I found it so compelling that Carolyn, as Gwen's therapist, was able to eventually guide her out of her deeply carved ED abyss by peeling away the layers of Gwen's resistance to finally identify the motivator that would silence Gwen's unhealthy voice once and for all.

With the secrecy and shame that surrounds an eating disorder, as well as the necessary privacy of therapy sessions, it can be difficult for parents to understand what their daughter is going through, what goes on in therapy, what recovery entails, understanding intuitive eating, etc. I found it so helpful and eye opening to follow Gwen's thoughts from the onset of her eating disorder and into its depths, and all the way through to her full recovery, and appreciate that she reveals the specifics of her disordered behaviors and the therapy details that would normally remain secret and behind closed doors. Relaying her experiences in the manner she has gives me comfort and an understanding that the recovery process can be long but to not give up hope.

The authors' empathetic and approachable tone is comforting, especially to someone like me who didn't know who to turn to for help for my daughter. I appreciate that they offer their contact information for additional help and resources. Though it is primarily a self-help book, it is a must read for anyone who has a friend or child suffering from an eating disorder.

Excellent. Highly recommended. As a therapist who has treated eating disorders for many years THIS is the book I have recommended and reviewed with patients. Those looking for a straight forward presentation of research, tools, solutions and life long recovery will be guided professionally and wisely to healing. This is a positive and encouraging work.

I have quite the library of eating disorders books and feel this is one of the best. Easy to read and a great resource for either a clinician or a client. I especially appreciated the exercises suggested in the book and found them to be much more meaningful than some of the other cheesy exercises I've seen.

major difference the author writes from personal expierence, she also lays out sort of a blueprint of this wild road of recovery from an eating disorder. What so so many folks struggle with is no one will give us a map... not even directions and you feel like you are running in circles just as much as when you were when in eating disorders behaviors.....this author however given you 8 keys by which you can create your own map along with the help for a treatment team.
I ordered this book for the mother of a young woman who is struggling with an eating disorder. I read the book myself before sending it and found it to be very insightful about developing an approach to recovering from such a disorder. I would recommend the book.
