The book is the most comprehensive document on taking a detailed eating disorder history. It is the first of it’s kind. It covers over 100 eating disorder behaviours and attests to the myriad of medical, social and psychological factors that create near endless permutations and combinations of confounding factors. It gives examples of hundreds of possible questions one could ask during an assessment. It provides a framework for eliciting a real-time history for gleaning the most extensive and useful information. Detailed medical symptomatology and complicating medical conditions such as diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, chronic pelvic pain and endometriosis are addressed.
