Bringing together leading authorities, this comprehensive volume integrates the best current knowledge and treatment approaches for eating disorders in children and adolescents. The book reveals how anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and other disorders present differently in children than in adults and explains their potentially far-reaching impact on psychological, physical, and neurobiological development. It provides guidelines for developmentally sound assessment and diagnosis, with attention to assessment challenges unique to this population. Detailed descriptions of evidence-based therapies are illustrated with vivid case examples. Promising directions in prevention are also addressed. A special chapter offers a parent's perspective on family treatment.
