Work together toward recoveryWhen Your Child Has an Eating Disorder provides parents with hope as well as direction to aid their eating disordered child. -Vivian Hanson Meehan, president and founder, National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated DisordersThis book provides parents with invaluable information about eating disorders and concrete steps to take in pursuing the best treatment option for their child. It is a much needed endorsement of the positive role families can play in treatment. -Daniel le Grange, director, Eating Disorders Program, The University of ChicagoPractical, informed, comprehensive, and highly readable. This is a book that will be equally valuable to parents, patients, and clinicians. -Craig Johnson, director, Eating Disorders Program, Laureate Psychiatric Hospital, TulsaThe wonderful workbook format will help families gain a deeper and more personal understanding of the illness and assist them in developing commonsense interventions. -Patricia Santucci, assistant clinical professor of psychiatry, Loyola Stritch School of Medicine and founding member, Academy for Eating DisordersDear Parent, Eating disorders know no boundaries. With indiscriminate cruelty they can crush friendships, splinter families, and ravage health. I have watched my husband, and then my daughter, in the grips of this puzzling affliction. Like a small ship lost on a thundering sea, a person who is witness to a family membera??s eating disorder can be overcome by fear, discouragement, or grief. For me, Abigail Natenshona??s book has been like a lighthouse in that storm. With knowledge that comes from experience, she guides us on this difficult journey with skill and courageous optimism. She increases our knowledge, teaches us about treatment options, and arms us with the tools to be the best advocates we can be for our child. She invites us all to look beyond the symptoms of this disease to see whata??s at its core-the suffering in the heart of our loved one. She reminds us that this disease can, and usually is, conquered. Your child can recover from this illness, as did mine. The ship you share can arrive safely to shore. -With understanding and best wishes for you and your child, An Anonymous Parent
