Doing What Works:
An Integrative System for the Treatment of Eating Disorders from Diagnosis to Recovery

International Acclaim for the Book

Testimonial from Tasmania, Australia


Hi Abigail,

I wanted to let you know how much I have enjoyed and learnt from your book Doing what works: an integrative system for the treatment of eating disorders.

I spend most of my time these days working at the University of Tasmania, but still run a small private practice.

Services are extremely limited here in Launceston, Tasmania; although children and adolescents have access to treatment which is free via a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS).  It must be great to be able to access appropriate levels of care and services for clients of all ages!  Often my job is to pull together a team of GP and a nutritionist (dietician over here), and we try to offer the best service we can with limited resources and no inpatient service for ED  adults, unless they are ill enough to require medical hospitalization (general medical ward) or psychiatric services, via the public system.

It is uplifting to read about your stories of recovery and the cautions around this.  So often clients are not fully recovered and their lives remain compromised and driven by their disorder, despite ‘close enough’ weight gain.  I will definitely be guided by your approaches to this issue.

Thanks again for your great book…and best wishes,
