When Your Child has an Eating Disorder is the first hands-on workbook to help parents successfully intervene when they suspect their child has an eating disorder. This step-by-step guide is filled with self-tests, questions and answers, journaling and role playing exercises, and practical resources that give parents the insight they need to understand eating disorders and their treatment, recognize symptoms in their child, and work with their child toward recovery. This excellent and effective resource is one therapists can feel confident about recommending to patients.

“…written in a confident and approachable style, avoiding jargon, and the text is well broken up… a valuable book..” (www.edr.org.uk, 23 November 2004)

"I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone interested in learning more about the spectrum of eating disorders. Parents, teachers, doctors, and therapists will find just what they need in Abigail Natenshon's comprehensive exploration of this most puzzling disorder." ?Mary Ann Kirk, licensed clinical professional counselor
