Over the last 30 years, the prevalence of eating difficulties has increased to become a widespread experience across the UK and worldwide. This book offers a comprehensive guide written by people with lived experience of eating difficulties, their families and leading researchers, clinicians and therapists: all aiming to improve understanding of practical ways of supporting people experiencing eating difficulties to live and thrive in their communities. This handbook covers the important topics of understanding eating difficulties in our society’s context, including the role of social media and the fashion industry, and how healthcare professionals and voluntary organisations can support those experiencing an eating difficulty. It explores the value of exercise, nutrition and sleep, and considers support from parents and schools for children, as well as reasonable adjustments for young people and adults in higher education and the workplace. Particular therapies for support and recovery are detailed. A final section sets out examples of creative and arts-based approaches.
