When I was struggling with anorexia and bulimia, my family felt lost. They did not know what to do; they did not know what to say. They felt like they were walking on eggshells around me.

I wish that "The Parent's Guide to Eating Disorders" had been around when I was battling my eating disorder. It would have benefited both my family and me immensely. This easy-to-read book not only gives hope but also provides real guidance for finding a full recovery.

As a recovered individual and a professional working in the eating disorder field today, I highly recommend "The Parent's Guide to Eating Disorders" to all parents, patients, and professionals dealing with this illness. Unlike other books, the authors give a full spectrum view of eating disorder treatment, including the life-saving Maudsley approach.

With "The Parent's Guide to Eating Disorders," there is no more walking on eggshells!

- Jenni Schaefer, author of Life Without Ed: How One Woman Declared Independence from Her Eating Disorder and How You Can Too (McGraw-Hill)

Format: Paperback
Childhood and adolescent eating disorders are as complex as they are wide spread among the youth of today. Now parents have a practical, comprehensive, effective, and 'user friendly' instruction manual on how they can help their children to overcome (and even avoid) any category of eating disorder through a home-based recovery with "The Parent's Guide To Eating Disorders: Supporting Self-Esteem, Healthy Eating, & Positive Body Image At Home" by Marcia Herrin (Founder of the Dartmoth College Eating Disorder Prevention, Education and Treatment Programs) and writer/author Nancy Matsumoto. This newly updated and expanded second edition of "The Parent's Guide To Eating Disorders" includes four chapters devoted to the Maudsley approach, the highly successful, parent-assisted method for normalizing eating behavior. Of special note is the first-person account by the mother of one anorexic child who describes her daughter's recovery using the techniques developed by Dr. Herrin. Other sections of "The Parent's Guide To Eating Disorders" focus on family communications, the medical consequences of eating disorders, advice for siblings, relapse prevention, food plans, and boys who are at risk for an eating disorder. Informed and informative, "The Parent's Guide To Eating Disorders" is a very strongly recommended addition to family and community library Health & Medicine reference collections in general, and Eating Disorder supplemental reading lists in particular.

Format: Paperback
This is a comprehensive and well-written book that will help parents navigate a vast amount of complex information about eating disorders. It clearly explains the various eating disorders and provides concrete information about treatment, about supporting children at home and in treatment, and about how to foster a positive body image at home.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By annonymous on March 7, 2008
Format: Paperback
The Parent's Guide to Eating Disorders contains an excellent section devoted to PAMS, or Parent-Assisted Meals and Snacks. I cant tell you how valuable and necessary this information is for a parent implementing the Maudsley approach to an eating disordered child. The author discuss the importance of monitoring and "forcing" your child to eat, what you should serve, how to deal with food fears, and what to expect. Nothing is sugar-coated, there is actually an example "Jessie's Story", in the middle of the chapter that provides support and encouragement. They stress the importance of being as loving as possible and give real advice on outlasting the child's resistance and not giving up. This process, sitting with a child, arguing over calories and trying to get them to just eat, can be so frustrating,and the authors help parents provide a united front and find the courage and strength within themselves to bring an end to their kid's ED. Any parent thinking of using the Maudsley method would find this book an invaluable resource
