More About the Author

Carolyn recovered herself from anorexia nervosa over twenty-five years ago. Her own recovery is a primary factor in her understanding of and establishing empathy with her clients. Carolyn served as director for several hospital programs but soon realized the need to have a more home-like environment for optimum treatment to take place. She created her unique 6-bed residential program, Monte Nido, to serve this purpose.

Her unique combination of experience, training, and passion have led Carolyn to national recognition, as have her accomplishments in the field of eating disorders. She is a frequent speaker at national eating disorder conferences and is a member of several national eating disorder organizations. Carolyn is on the editorial board of "The Eating Disorder Journal of Treatment and Prevention" and writes on issues pertaining to eating disorders for various magazines and publications. Carolyn is also the author of two books, Your Dieting Daughter and The Eating Disorder Sourcebook. Carolyn stays versed in the etiology and treatment of eating disorders on cultural, developmental, biological and psychological levels.

In addition to Monte Nido, Carolyn is also director of The Eating Disorder Center of California, which offers her approach to recovery in an intensive day-treatment program. Despite overseeing her clinics and participating in a wide range of responsibilities, such as being a board member of the National Eating Disorder Association (NEDA) and traveling the country lecturing, Carolyn continues to maintain a hands-on approach at Monte Nido Treatment Center, providing both individual and group therapy.

In Spring 2006, Carolyn will be opening a new affiliate, RainRock, a 10-bed facility, located near Eugene, Oregon on the McKenzie River. RainRock will follow the philosophy and protocols of the successful treatment program developed by Carolyn at Monte Nido in Malibu, California.

By Deb on September 15, 2012
Format: Paperback
So, I read lots of books on eating disorders. (I'm an eating disorder therapist, and the subject also just endlessly fascinates me.) And, from all this reading, I've discovered a bunch of books that I'd happily recommend to clients and their families. I've recently added this one to that list!

For individuals who have recently been diagnosed with an eating disorder--and the friends, family and significant others who support them--this book is a great first step towards gaining a clear overview of eating disorder diagnoses, medical issues, causes, treatment, support, and recovery. (It's also a nice refresher for anyone who wants to brush up on eating disorder essentials.)

Divided into ten easily digestible (the puns never get old) sections, this book provides answers to 100 common questions on eating disorders:

Part 1. Overview of Eating Disorders:
Questions 1-24 discuss the different types of eating disorders and the signs for recognizing an eating disorder, including:

1. What is an eating disorder?
2. What is the difference between anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa?
3. I binge but do not purge. Is that considered an eating disorder?
4. Is it true that you can be a normal weight and still have an eating disorder?
5. If I only purge my meals but don't ever binge, do I have bulimia?
6. My doctor says I have EDNOS. Does that mean my eating disorder is not bad?
7. Is obesity an eating disorder?
8. My 10-year-old daughter is a very picky eater. Is this an eating disorder?
9. Have eating disorders been around historically and for how long?
10. When does disordered eating become an eating disorder?
11. Is it true that exercise can be a form of purging?
