This groundbreaking volume presents a new conceptual approach to working with adults with eating disorders and their children. By utilizing Parent-Based Prevention, a state-of-the-art intervention program from Stanford University for families who risk raising children in the context of parental eating disorders, Parents with Eating Disorders offers a practical, evidence-based manual to treating families with the goal of preventing disordered eating from being passed to future generations. Additional resources include intervention planning and self-assessment forms intended for clinicians to use as they implement the program.
