Eating disorders are relatively common among tweens and teens and the numbers have stayed roughly the same for several decades despite effective prevention and early intervention treatment methods. What does research tell us now that we didn’t know ten years ago? The authors seamlessly integrate the latest research in gene inheritance, brain chemistry, and treatments of eating disorders in accessible, reader-friendly language for each case study.
This book is for those suffering from eating disorders, their parents and family members, health care practitioners, and anyone who cares about someone who suffers from an eating disorder.
