According to the Eating Disorders Association there is a general lack of recognition of eating disorders in men, making it more difficult for male patients to access specialist services, although clients with problems connected with over-eating, under-eating, and poor eating form a significant proportion of counsellors’ lists.

This book focuses on men whose eating patterns have generated side-effects on other aspects of their lives such as work, health and family. By adopting the unique approach of the Living Therapy Series, using fictitious dialogue to illustrate the person-centred approach, the reader is able to experience directly the diverse and challenging issues surrounding patients. This is difficult to achieve with conventional text books. Counselling for Eating Disorders in Men provides vital insight for trainees and experienced counsellors, as well as men suffering from eating disorders, their friends and families. It will also be of interest to members of support organisations.
