This book was suggested by an ED clinic I called when desperate to find help for our daughter. The book gave us the confidence that we could and should help our daughter over come anorexia at home. I highly recommend this book to all parents and professionals (who have never heard of Maudsley or FBT)who are caring for individuals with anorexia.

I wish I would have read this book on the same week that my daughter was diagnosed with Restrictive Anorexia. This book teaches parents how to recognize an ED, how to separate the child from the illness, and how to refeed an Anorexic child. The only area where I feel it is lacking is that it does not prepare parents for the intensity and ugliness of the fight that ED puts up.

The best "how to" book out there. Simple to read.

If a parent/family member asks me what one book would I suggest this is the one. It provides the reader with a comprehensive overview of the Maudsley Approach, Goals, Objectives and hands on examples of how to put the theory into action. I believe it is an essential read for parents as the embark on this mission because it arms them with essential tools!

If a parent is going to read just one book--this would be it. Every support group for families of children with eating disorders should give this out in the first session. What is remarkable is that not a single clinician EVER recommended it to us in the early years of our daughters treatment nor had any read it themselves.

This is the first book I would point parents to. A comprehensive review of theoretical approaches to treatment and a clear explanation of evidence based care. A vital tool for families who are looking for a great "how to" guide to family based treatment. I consider this a must read for every family in this battle

Of the many books we have read, this is one of the few which has provided real help. We refer to it time and again as we travel this ED journey. Different sections of the book will resonate with us at different times in the recovery process providing help or encouragement. This book has become our text book for ED recovery.

If only I had this book at the beginning. A comprehensive step by step walk through what is required to take control of the eating disorder and break the hold it has over the sufferer. Always positive and clear in the specific scenieros that face a family in fighting this disorder. I am recommending that all our local libraries have multiple copies as well as our local bookstore. This has helped us rally as a family and understand our daughters distress.This book should be read by all medical staff.

'Hold onto your hat!' This book explains successful, evidence based treatment and underscores how vital the family's role is in the treatment of eating disorders. You will be encouraged, not blamed.

Invaluable. An excellent reference for parents on the Maudsley Method and Family Based Therapy. Positive, practical information for families that have taken on the role of helping a loved one fight an eating disorder. A step by step guide. All students studying medicine and general practitioners need to read this as well.

This book is good at explaining how to separate your child from her ED and to remain caring and loving in the face of extreme resistance. The need for consistency is also emphasized. I had hoped it would help me to feed my child and learn skills to achieve this, but alas no.

As a parent, this was very helpful. I read and reread it. It helped me make decisions, it helped me think through interactions, it helped me understand what was going on. Excellent.

Taught me step-by-step to re-feed, understand AN is not my fault, a bio based brain disorder - saved my D's life and learned to understand ED is separate from my child! Excellent; highly recommend as others have and particularly useful is the more clinical 2nd version for clinicians and practitioner's!

I have read several books to help understand and come to grips with our daughter's anorexia. It presents a thorough and practical guide for parents, including a whole chapter on not wasting your time and energy on the 'why' of it all. The book provides excellent information and solace for those of us that find ourselves in the position of feeding / saving our teens.
