In the third edition of this accessible and comprehensive book, Bryan Lask and Rachel Bryant-Waugh build on the research and expertise of the previous two editions. First published in 1993, this was the earliest book of its kind to explore eating disorders in people under 15, a population that is very distinct from those in their late teens and adulthood.

The contributors' experience and knowledge has increased greatly in the past 15 years. This fully revised edition offers a distillation of current information in the younger population, and contains brand new chapters on areas of research and practice such as:

  • eating disorders and the brain
  • nutrition and refeeding
  • motivational approaches.

Eating Disorders in Childhood and Adolescence offers the reader knowledge, perception and understanding of this fascinating but challenging patient group. It has both a clinical and research focus and will be an essential text for a wide range of professionals, as well as being readable for parents of children suffering from eating disorders.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is an excellent book with contributions from a wide range of experts in the field. It is comprehensive and everybody working in the field will find it invaluable." - Alan Stein, Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, University of Oxford, UK

"Alone the chapter on 'sensitivities that heal and those that hinder' by Ken Nunn would have justified a third edition of this book, but there is more, much more of value to the clinician in these newly revised chapters. The information reviewed here from neuroimaging studies, a fresh look at etiological possibilities, and Simon Gower's review of prognosis and outcome have made this edition not only more useful to the theoretician, but of value to the clinician struggling to help the the families of children with eating disorders understand the state of the art and science." - Julie O'Toole M.D., M.P.H. Medical Director Kartini Clinic, Portland, Oregon, USA
