"In the fall of 2005 our daughter was confined to a hospital bed. Her doctor recommended Help Your Teenager Beat an Eating Disorder. I recognized my daughter's anorexic behaviors in the very first paragraph of Chapter 1, but didn't realize then how invaluable the book would be in the months to follow. This book has been one oasis of sanity that I've revisited many times, and each time I've found hope and help. I'll continue to recommend it as required reading for any parent who's fighting for their child's life."--Ann, member of www.maudsleyparents.org
"The second edition has been fully updated to incorporate current diagnostic classifications for feeding and eating disorders and the latest research evidence. Lock and Le Grange use their wealth of academic expertise and clinical wisdom to offer parents empathy, understanding, and practical advice. Written in accessible language, the book is filled with realistic scenarios aimed at affirming and mobilizing parents to take action. Lock and Le Grange address many of the pervasive myths about eating disorders, assuage guilt, and offer hope to parents in the frightening early stages of the illness. Highly recommended."--Dasha Nicholls, MBBS, MD, Feeding and Eating Disorders Service, Great Ormond Street Hospital and Institute of Child Health, London, United Kingdom
