New Eating Disorder Book -- Starving For Affection

Dr. Bausch shares:

"Starving for Affection-a journey of eating disorders, drugs, and sex by Nancy Lee Bausch, PhD is based on a true story. Using a first-person narrative, it covers the period from a young girl’s adolescence to her early twenties. It is a vivid retelling of how she dealt with being a fat girl in a society that celebrated thinness. Bulimia and amphetamines were her solution for over 15 years. They are graphically described and include the causes and effects of the twin addictions. Her secret has cost her years of her life. Her personal story is a cautionary tale for girls who will do anything to fit in, to be accepted, to be included in today’s world of slender bodies. Perhaps her story will help others. She feels strongly that this book can help teens and adults who struggle with their eating disorders and also help those who live and guide those individuals."

And her bio:

"Dr. Bausch is currently an Adjunct Professor of Psychology at Arizona State University—West Campus. She has specialized in depression and eating disorders for over 18 years in her clinical practice and worked in counseling and education for more than 35 years.
