A New Approach to Eating Disorders

"The Secret Language of Eating Disorders" By Peggy Claude-Pierre Random House Audiobooks, Two cassettes Length: 3 hours $18. Read by the author

January 19, 1998|ROCHELLE O'GORMAN FLYNN

Claude-Pierre, founder of the Montreux Clinic for eating disorders in Canada, has had unqualified success by taking a fresh approach to bulimia and anorexia. She developed her theories, which go against most conventional methods, while treating and saving the lives of her own two daughters.

She has a soft voice and a distinguished manner that may be too low-key for some listeners. The audio, however, is intelligently abridged from the longer printed version, maintaining all pertinent information. Though Claude-Pierre could have used a little pepping up, her writing is accessible and she offers a helping hand to parents who may have exhausted all other approaches.
