Editorial Reviews

Review

"As a clinician who engages families in the treatment of eating disorders, I cannot think of a more comprehensive, authoritative, and thoughtfully curated collection of knowledge about these complex disorders. With its groundbreaking focus on the fundamental developmental nature of anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa, Eating Disorders in Children and Adolescents asks meaningful questions, broadens our understanding, sharpens our efforts, and strengthens our resolve."--Leslie Sim, PhD, ABPP, Clinical Director, Mayo Inpatient Eating Disorders Program; Department of Psychiatry and Psychology, Mayo Graduate School of Medicine

"An authoritative and comprehensive guide to the assessment and treatment of eating disorders in children and adolescents. I strongly recommend this unique resource."--Christopher G. Fairburn, DM, FMedSci, FRCPsych, Professor of Psychiatry, University of Oxford, United Kingdom

"A timely and important contribution. No previous book has addressed this subject in such detail. The 25 chapters, written by leaders in the field, provide a comprehensive, scholarly, and clinically useful review of all major topics pertaining to individuals with eating disorders in this age group. I highly recommend this book to all clinicians who work with patients with eating disorders."--James E. Mitchell, MD, President, Neuropsychiatric Research Institute; Christoferson Professor and Chair of Clinical Neuroscience, University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences

"Eating disorders in childhood and adolescence have been quite neglected, despite the fact that the majority of eating disorders begin at this time. This welcome book pulls together what is known about causation, consequences, and treatment. It provides essential knowledge not only for treating this population, but also for better understanding eating disorders in adults. Practitioners, researchers, and graduate students specializing in eating disorders should have this valuable book on their shelves."--W. Stewart Agras, MD, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences (Emeritus), Stanford University School of Medicine
 

"Written by experts who work specifically with children and adolescents with eating disorders, this handbook updates the practitioner on neurobiology and gene-environment interactions, diagnostic challenges, and advances in evidence-based treatment and prevention. Clearly and concisely written, this book should be on the shelf of every professional who treats eating disorders in children and teens."--Neville H. Golden, MD, The Marron and Mary Elizabeth Kendrick Professor in Pediatrics, Stanford University School of Medicine; Chief, Division of Adolescent Medicine, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital

"Once again, the two renowned clinicians, Dr. Le Grange and Dr. Lock, have put together a highly informative source, inviting contributions from an internationally recognized group of authorities currently working with medically ill and psychiatrically compromised eating disorder children and adolescents....The ready-to-use charts and diagrams, clinical vignettes, and clinical issue discussions and follow up are easy to read and help the reader with decision making regarding their patients....One of the most valuable, concise, and comprehensive textbooks available to date on eating disorder treatment of children and adolescents. I would highly recommend this book as a must read for child psychiatry residents and fellows and other trainees interested in diagnosis and management of eating disorders. It is a keeper."--Eating Disorders
