These are the two case studies I have to use.

Case study 1: Ahmed H.
Ahmed is 18 years old and has an eating disorder. Ahmed is currently in a specialist treatment centre. He was referred to the unit following concerns about his severe weight loss. It had been discovered that Ahmed would pretend to eat and then throw the food away when he thought that no one was looking. Ahmed had previously had problems with his weight and had been bullied throughout school, due to his obesity. He is currently refusing to eat more than a small amount of food during the day.

Case study 2: Sarah K.
Sarah is 42 years old and regularly attends a Community Psychiatric Clinic for support with her ongoing clinical depression. Sarah was emotionally and physically abused as a child, which has resulted in a low self-image and low self-esteem. She constantly apologises, even though she has done nothing wrong and has days when life does not seem worth living. Sarah has twice attempted suicide.
