Alternately, if you are interested in acquiring more general information, please feel free to peruse the tabs below.

Should you have any other resources that you feel should be included, please let us know.

The following books were recommended by treatment professionals currently working in the field of eating disorders.
All the books are linked to Amazon, so that you can review the book and can purchase directly from the site if you wish, but many of these titles can be purchased from other sources as well. We have also created a list of recommended books available through Edmonton Public Library. Visit their site to see which titles they have on hand. These resources are provided as information, and are intended for educational information only. They are not meant to replace counselling services of a professional.
