If your teenager shows signs of having an eating disorder, you may hope that, with the right mix of love, encouragement, and parental authority, he or she will just "snap out of it." If only it were that simple. To make matters worse, certain treatments assume you've somehow contributed to the problem and prohibit you from taking an active role.

This is the bible for parents of a child suffering from anorexia.

THE BIBLE for evidence based treatment protocols for treating a teenager with an eating disorder.

Life changing, life saving and, in conjunction with FEAST and the Around the Dinner Table forum, saved my daughter's life.

An absolute MUST READ for all parents of a child with eating disorders.
Sarah
One of the better books on the subject of eating disorders. Would likely be a helpful guide for parents with a newly diagnosed teen or those who have already experienced some of the devastation these diseases cause. Discussion of various treatment options as well as case studies are explored.
Maggie
This is based on the Maudsley approach with some references to other theories that are out there and a guideline for parents to start to figure out what to do with their child with an eating disorder
Rachel
Not really the kind of book that you read to like. Read this as research for work. I thought it was very informative. My heart goes out to all families facing an eating disorder.
Marilyn
