The Parent's Guide to Eating Disorders: Supporting Self-Esteem, Healthy Eating, and Positive Body Image at Home

Self Help - Carers
Book 384 pages

The Parent's Guide is a valuable resource for parents who want to address eating issues in their child. The book is divided into four parts; identifying an Eating Disorder, taking action, using Maudsley methods, and a healthy eating guide. The book is clear and practical, and addresses topics such as how to "break-the-ice" and open up discussion about eating problems, how to avoid parent traps to help your child overcome their eating problems, and how to implement family-based "Maudsley" treatment. The book supports parents in their crucial role in promoting the child's path to recovery, and seeks to engender hope and impart practical strategies to address Eating Disorders in young people.
