Eating problems in children and teenagers are very common. Yet myths about the problem abound and it can be very difficult to separate the facts from popular beliefs; unusual or disturbed eating patterns can be understandably bewildering and distressing for parents.

Whatever aspect of your child's eating behaviour is causing you concern, this book will help you understand some of the more common reasons why problems arise, and will give you advice on what you and others can do to manage the situation.

Written by experienced clinicians, this new edition of Eating Disorders: A Parents' Guide is dedicated to clarifying the subject of eating disorders. Combining an accessible and straightforward introduction to the subject with practical advice, this book represents the first step towards diagnosis and treatment.

Case-studies are used to help parents to understand their children's experiences of this complex and challenging subject and sensitive advice is offered on a range of issues, including:

  • how to identify a complete range of eating difficulties
  • how to approach specific problems
  • where to seek help and treatment.

This book will be welcomed by anyone who is concerned about the eating habits of their children and will be invaluable to professionals working with those suffering from eating disorders.

Review:

"This book fills a gap in the books available on eating disorders in that it addresses a wide range of potential eating disorders in young people... This is a reassuring book without negating the seriousness of an eating disorder and is written as though sharing knowledge with equal partners in the process of helping a child" - Signpost, March 2005
