Synopsis

Help Your Teenager Beat an Eating Disorder by Daniel Le Grange, James E. Lock

Always harmful and potentially deadly, eating disorders can wreak havoc on families. Unfortunately, the same can often be said of their treatment: blaming parents for the illness, many eating disorder programs exclude parents and widen the rift in an already shattered family. This powerful and controversial book by top researchers James Lock and Daniel le Grange argues that parents are not the culprits but the key to their teen's recovery. Based on new research, Help Your Teenager Beat an Eating Disorder shows how parents can break the disorder's control over their child's mind and re-establish normal eating and family relations. The odds for full recovery drop precipitously if treatment is delayed. A radically important wake up call, this book urges parents to act now.

Reviews

'Truly excellent. An invaluable resource for parents. It provides sound, commonsense answers to all the most important questions. Written by experts--and it shows.' - Christopher G Fairburn, author of Overcoming Binge Eating 'If you are the parent of a teenager who is struggling with an eating disorder, you probably feel confused, anxious, and filled with questions. What should you do? Is it your fault? Can you help? This book, written by two eating disorder experts, will help you find some answers. It clearly explains what eating disorders are about and which treatments work best, and gives practical suggestions and encouragement. Recommended for any concerned parent.' - Rachel Bryant-Waugh, University of Southampton, UK; author of Eating Disorders: A Parents'
Guide

'I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I think it would be a useful resource for any parent who is caring for a teenager with an eating disorder, as it is filled with loads of useful information... the book is very good at vividly illustrating how families can band together to help fight eating disorders, in a safe and supportive way so that they do not feel completely powerless. All round I feel that this book is a very useful resource for parents, and I highly recommend it.' - Jade McEwen, Signpost, March 2005'
