If Your Adolescent Has an Eating Disorder

An Essential Resource for Parents

B. Timothy Walsh and V. L. Cameron

Adolescent Mental Health Initiative

  • Optimistic and practical guide designed to help parents and other adults get help for and cope with adolescents who have these potentially life-threatening disorders
  • Features the most up-to-date research findings on eating disorders
  • Combines professional advice from a leading psychiatrist and practical daily management tips from parents who have faced these disorders in their own children
  • Incorporates the word of parents throughout to create something of a "virtual support group"
  • Addresses the hot-button issue of obesity and whether its treatment (e.g., dieting programs) can put teens at risk for eating disorders
  • This is one of 12 paperbacks in the Adolescent Mental Health Initiative series, sponsored by the Annenberg Foundation at Sunnylands as part of a broad effort to educate the public and improve the nation's understanding of and response to adolescent mental illness
