5.0 out of 5 stars A must for any parent whose child has an Eating Disorder., 6 Aug. 2001
By 
This review is from: Eating Disorders: A Parent's Guide (Penguin health) (Paperback)
This book is a must for any Parent whose child has an eating disorder.It is also a valuable resource for paediatric nurses and other health professionals who work with this client group. Clearly written, it covers the broad spectrum of eating disorders from Anorexia Nervosa to Bulimia.
The Chapters are clearly laid out and the book can be used as a resource to dip in and out of but i would agree with the authors that it is best to sit down and read it in order and then dip in and out as needed. It is very easy to read, containing little medical jargon and can be read in a couple of days.
Descriptions of each disorder are given along with an overview of predisposing and precipitating factors. But the most helpful chapters are those that deal with coping on a day to day basis. They offer strategies that parents and health care professionals can use to help maintain their own sanity and help these youngsters ensuring consistency of approach.
At the end is a list of useful addresses where parents can seek further help and support.The book is non-judgemental and offers parents a message of hope, that though the journey is long and hard there is light at the end of the tunnel.
