Opis: Demystifying Anorexia Nervosa - Alexander R. Lucas, Lucas

Emotionally and physically devastating, anorexia nervosa is the third most common chronic illness in teenage girls, striking one in every two hundred (boys only make up 10 per cent of all cases). And while there are a plethora of books on the subject, most are either personal accounts of recovery or attempts to explain the disease from only one perspective, be it psychoanalytic, behavioural, cultural, or biological. Now, in this much-needed resource, Dr. Alexander Lucas draws on 40 years of experience, mostly at the Mayo Clinic, to offer clear guidance and authoritative advice on how to overcome anorexia nervosa. Based on his own unique research with thousands of patients, and striking a careful balance between psychological, cultural, and biological approaches, Dr. Lucas demystifies this seemingly irrational disease and guides parents through the harrowing process of recovery. The book defines anorexia, illustrates how it can evolve and how common it really is, and outlines every part of the treatment process, from the early warning signs that parents should watch out for, to the initial evaluation, to specific treatment plans. Dr. Lucas emphasizes the patient's role in defining the healing process, with the support of the family and medical team. Throughout the book, he counsels optimism, stressing that in spite of the destructive power of the disease, most who suffer from anorexia nervosa fully recover and are able to live normal, healthy, and productive lives. For anyone seeking level-headed, medically sound, and comprehensive guidance on the most effective treatments for this life-threatening disorder, Demystifying Anorexia Nervosa offers a wealth of reliable, reassuring information.
"Dr. Andy Lucas demystifies anorexia by providing us with the fascinating mysteries of clinical cases (and their solutions) along with the equally fascinating mysteries of his research efforts (and their results). A clear, informative book for every patient and parent to read and for every physician to recommend."--Lenore Terr, M.D., Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, University of California School of Medicine, San Francisco
"Dr. Lucas has infused an immense amount of wisdom and experience into this highly readable book. A must-read for patients and family as well as clinicians who want a concise, balanced, and up-to-date discussion of the art and science of the treatment of anorexia nervosa."--L. K. George Hsu, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry, Tufts-New England Medical Center
"Andy Lucas has written an excellent book that respects the individuality of the patient with anorexia nervosa while offering sage advice, reassurance, and hope to their parents. Highly recommended."--Jam1. What is Anorexia Nervosa?; 2. How does Anorexia Nervosa evolve?; 3. How common is Anorexia Nervosa?; 4. What causes Anorexia Nervosa?; 5. The signs of trouble; 6.
