A Radical Recovery: A Manifesto of Eating Disorder Pride

A Radical Recovery: A Manifesto of Eating Disorder Pride

By: Chris Kraatz (author)Paperback

1 - 2 weeks availability


Eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder are some of the most deadly "mental illnesses;" however, research into the nature of these conditions and possible treatments remains virtually unfunded. As a result, there is no standard model of treatment for eating disorders and no definitive information on the number of people in the U.S. who suffer from one or more of these conditions. Radical Recovery openly addresses the national epidemic of eating disorders and offers practical suggestions for how to effectively promote awareness and change in a more responsible and compassionate way. Issues addressed include success rates for eating disorders treatment, current research, mortality and eating disorders, the presence of eating disorders in both sexes and all ages, overcoming social stigma, and eating disorders activism.
