Default Need help dealing with anorexic person

I need help in dealing with an anorexic person. From what I know about anorexic people you can stand them naked in front of a mirror and they will look like they just came out of a concentration camp and they will say that they're fat. I've got a degree in psychology but I've never been trained in how to deal with anorexic people. So any advice would be appreciated.

Sorry, I have no experience with this eating disorder. I worked with a man once whose wife was like a skeleton, he talked at work about how she's in denial and thinks she's fat....I saw her several times, she looked on the verge of death. He was very emotional and said he didn't want her to die.

Last I heard he said he was trying to convince her to go to a psychologist who specialized in eating disorders. I don't know if he ever did or what happened there.

I think they have to see a specialist like that to accept the reality of their condition and health. Just like an addict, they have to come out of denial and admit they have a problem before they can move forward and do something about it.

Good luck with your friend, I hope they get the professional help needed.
