This is a re-print of Em Farrell's first book on Eating Disorders. Lost for Words explores the nature of anorexia and bulimia, paying particular attention to the issues of mortality and the complexities of the mother-daughter relationship. It stresses the importance for technique of understanding the violent and agonising nature of these individuals' inner worlds. It is primarily for psychotherapists and counsellors who wish to understand how anorexia and bulimia have been understood and worked with by clinicians. It includes some clinical vignettes and some pointers on technique.
