More than simple cases of dieting gone awry, eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia are among the most fatal of mental illnesses, responsible for more deaths each year than any other psychiatric disorder. These illnesses afflict millions of young people, especially women, all over the world. Carrie Arnold developed anorexia as an adolescent and nearly lost her life to the disease. In Next to Nothing, she tells the story of her descent into anorexia, how and why she fell victim to this mysterious illness, and how she was able to seek help and recover after years of therapy and hard work. Now an adult, Arnold uses her own experiences to offer practical advice and guidance to young adults who have recently been diagnosed with an eating disorder, or who are at risk for developing one. Drawing on the expertise of B. Timothy Walsh, M.D., one of America's leading authorities on eating disorders, she reveals in easy-to-understand terms what is known and not known medically about anorexia and bulimia. The book covers such difficult topics as how to make sense of a diagnosis, the various psychotherapies available to those struggling with an eating disorder, psychiatric hospitalization, and how to talk about these illnesses to family and friends. The result is both a compelling memoir and a practical guide that will help to ease the isolation that an eating disorder can impose, showing young people how to manage and maintain their recovery on a daily basis. Part of the Adolescent Mental Health Initiative series of books written specifically for teens and young adults, Next to Nothing will also be a valuable resource to the friends and family of those with eating disorders. It offers much-needed hope to young people, helping them to overcome these illnesses and lead productive and healthy lives.

Fast Facts For Health Promotion In Nursing

This addition to the Fast Facts series provides a succinct guide for nurses in adult-health clinical settings and fills the need for an easy-to-use clinical reference that delivers a quick-access reference on ways to incorporate wellness into their work, helping to improve patient outcomes, and throughout their daily lives, helping to reduce personal and professional stress and improve their overall wellness. There currently is no clinical reference book that nurses can use for health promotion in general and health promotion for wellness in particular. Having such a reference is especially pertinent to nurses who learned about health promotion in academic nursing programs, but did not learn about health promotion in the broader context of promoting wellness. Since Florence Nightingale, nurses have considered health promotion interventions ñ particularly patient education -- as an essential component of nursing care. Historically, these interventions traditionally focused on physical health concerns, such as nutrition, exercise, and fresh air, and more recently, on immunizations, and screening for disease (e.g., cancer, diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease). Because health promotion has expanded to include wellness, nurses now address issues related to broader aspects, such as stress reduction, body-mind connectedness, and self-responsibility. At the same time that wellness has become an important focus of care, health care providers increasingly are emphasizing cost effectiveness and use of advanced technology. As a result of these concurrent trends, nurses experience high levels of job-related stress and have less time to promote patient wellness as an integral part of their care, even though they recognize its importance. In addition, nurses increasingly recognize that job-related pressures negatively affect them personally and they are looking for ways to incorporate wellness in their work and personal experiences. Fast Facts for Health Promotion for Wellness (FF HP) fills the need for an easy-to-use clinical reference that delivers a quick-access reference on ways to incorporate wellness into their work and throughout their daily lives. This book: Helps nurses understand wellness in the context of health promotion Clearly defines wellness as it applies to the practice of nursing Describes evidence-based techniques that nurses can readily incorporate into their usual care to promote wellness for their patients Provides easy-to-use assessment tools for identifying wellness-related needs of patients Provides easy-easy-to-use tools for teaching patients about interventions to promote wellness Provides evidence-based information about complementary and alternative practices that nurses often address in patient care situations Provides information about reliable resources for patient teaching and additional information about topics Discusses ways in which nurses can achieve self wellness
