About "Beyond Chaotic Eating"
Eating disorders, which include anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and ^compulsive eating are conditions well recognized by the medical profession ^and the media, and are increasingly gaining understanding in the UK Church ^too. Yet while there have been Christian books written on people's ^experiences of "chaotic" eating, churches and individuals are crying out ^for a good resource book that will help them respond to the needs of those ^with eating disorders.^Helena Wilkinson, herself an ex-anorexic, and now a counsellor, maintains ^that eating disorders serve a purpose in people's lives, and addresses the ^underlying factors - such as family background, pain and fear of ^responsibility - that contribute to eating disorders. The book is a ^practical and compassionate guide based on extensive personal experience. ^Other titles by Helena Wilkinson include "Puppet on a String" and ^"Snakes and Ladders".
