Tens of thousands of parents have turned to this compassionate resource for support and practical advice grounded in cutting-edge scientific knowledge. Numerous vivid stories show how to recognize and address anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and other devastating eating disorders that wreak havoc on teens and their families. James Lock and Daniel Le Grange present strong evidence that parents—who have often been told to take a back seat in eating disorder treatment—can and must play a key role in recovery. Whether pursuing family-based treatment or other options, parents learn specific, doable steps for monitoring their teen's eating and exercise habits, managing mealtimes, ending weight-related power struggles, and collaborating successfully with health care providers. Featuring the latest research and resources, the second edition now addresses additional disorders recognized in DSM-5 (including binge-eating disorder).

Reviews:

“In the fall of 2005 our daughter was confined to a hospital bed. Her doctor recommended Help Your Teenager Beat an Eating Disorder. I recognized my daughter's anorexic behaviors in the very first paragraph of Chapter 1, but didn't realize then how invaluable the book would be in the months to follow. This book has been one oasis of sanity that I've revisited many times, and each time I've found hope and help. I'll continue to recommend it as required reading for any parent who's fighting for their child's life.”

—Ann, member of www.maudsleyparents.org

“Eating disorders can creep into your family life and take you by surprise. This book, written by two of the foremost clinicians in the field, illustrates the multifaceted nature of the problem and allows you to expand your resources based on their wisdom.”

—Janet Treasure, PhD, FRCP, FRCPsych, Director, Eating Disorders Research Unit, Kings College London, United Kingdom

“This book is essential reading for any parent, family member, or friend of someone with an eating disorder. It’s especially useful for those who have been told to ‘not be the food police’ or that they have no role in helping support a loved one with an eating disorder. It offers practical advice for how to help, along with something just as important: hope.”

—Harriet Brown, MFA, author of Brave Girl Eating: A Family’s Struggle with Anorexia

“Parents facing their son or daughter’s eating disorder are caught in a stormy night of fear and confusion. This second edition is a welcome lighthouse. Like the authors’ Family-Based Treatment model, the book empowers parents with the information and direction needed to ride out the storm and find safety. I recommend this book to parents, clinicians, and advocates.”

—Laura Collins Lyster-Mensh, MS, Founder of F.E.A.S.T. and Charlotte’s Helix

“From two renowned clinician-researchers, this book offers plenty of useful information. Throughout, vignettes offer clear-cut advice on how to respond to the many issues parents encounter before, during, and after treatment. This book is suitable for anyone who wants to learn more about the impact of eating disorders on families, and how to help.”

—Stewart Agras, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Stanford University
