I received an advance copy of this book and read it in an afternoon. This book contains everything I wish I needed to know when my daughter was diagnosed with anorexia nervosa. It is written in easy to understand vocabulary and in an orderly format. If you have a child struggling with an eating disorder get this book first and follow all of the advice. My daughter is now in good recovery and just started her freshman year of college and the advice found in this book is what we followed but we ha ...more

Dr Muhlheim presents the rationale behind Family Based Therapy (FBT), normalizes fears and apprehensions experienced by parents whose child is not able ...more

I can't recommend this book enough. When my daughter got sick, I was living in a foreign country , with a large expat community and no help around. Not all countries offer the clinics, residentials, hospitals , professionals and insurance support the USA offers. In my city, very few mental health services were available, two hours drive there was more help, but it took me two years to find the ONLY EDucated team in the country, in the region. While reading the book I got so excited thinking abou ...more

This book is excellent. It is the most practical book that I have read on treating Eating Disorders.
In My Opinion, It is the best book around for a parent starting out, or in the middle of this journey, with their child/adolescent/loved one suffering from an eating disorder.
Unlike many other books, it covers just about every topic in a very practical way.
The book is very up to date with current research, and is very easy to read and understand.
I have no doubt that this book will help many parent

Very well written and easy to understand. With a newly diagnosed daughter with anorexia this book has been a wealth of knowledge and I can relate to everything so far that has occurred and now have an insight into what the next stages will look like. Thank you so much for writing such a valuable book!
