Recovery Experiences

  • Brave Girl Eating: A Family's Struggle with Anorexia
    by Harriet Brown

    There will be few "personal journey" books that I would ever care to recommend to those looking for guidance on recovery from any kind of harmful eating behaviors, but this book is one worthy exception. Because the author is the mother of the daughter attempting to recover from anorexia nervosa, and because she is also an accomplished investigative writer, Harriet Brown offers up a clinically-valid process that resulted in a successfull recovery for her daughter, and her family. Accutely aware of how triggering many memoirs can be, Brown is cautious of what information she has chosen to include regarding the worst aspects of her daughter's illness.
