Descriptions du produit

From Publishers Weekly

Lock, a psychiatrist specializing in adolescence, and le Grange, an assistant professor of psychiatry, have written a comprehensive book on a difficult topic. They present some new concepts on the management of eating disorders that are somewhat contradictory to current thinking, and make valid points backed by research (the authors have a five-year grant for studying the treatment of anorexia nervosa). Early on, Lock and le Grange emphasize the need for parents to take immediate action in obtaining help for their teens and to not dwell on the "why." Many therapists balk at this approach, believing the motivations for an eating disorder are an essential part of treatment. But Lock and le Grange present research suggesting the disorder can be linked to personality traits and even genetics. The book then moves on to help parents understand eating disorders by delving into the complexity of these disorders, the distorted thinking behind a teenager's behavior and what the research says about the best ways to treat anorexia and bulimia. Finally, the authors address ways to make treatment work, drawing on experiences they've have had with families they have helped. There are many red flags that parents should recognize when it comes to their adolescent daughter or son's eating habits, and this intelligent book points them out clearly and concisely. (Feb.)

Présentation de l'éditeur

If your teenager shows signs of having an eating disorder, you may hope that, with the right mix of love, encouragement, and parental authority, he or she will just "snap out of it." If only it were that simple. To make matters worse, certain treatments assume you've somehow contributed to the problem and prohibit you from taking an active role. But as you watch your own teen struggle with a life-threatening illness, every fiber of your being tells you there must be some part you can play in restoring your child's health. In Help Your Teenager Beat an Eating Disorder, James Lock and Daniel Le Grange--two of the nation's top experts on the treatment of eating disorders--present compelling evidence that your involvement as a parent is critical. In fact, it may be the key to conquering your child's illness. Help Your Teenager Beat an Eating Disorder provides the tools you need to build a united family front that attacks the illness to ensure that your child develops nourishing eating habits and life-sustaining attitudes, day by day, meal by meal. Full recovery takes time, and relapse is common. But whether your child has already entered treatment or you're beginning to suspect there is a problem, the time to act is now. This book shows how.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The tide is turning on our understanding of ED's 11 février 2005
Par Constant Reader - Publié sur
To say that this book is revolutionary would not be an exaggeration. For decades, Anorexia and Bulimia in their many forms were viewed as the result of a combination of family dysfunction and social pressures. Though the scientific evidence to support this was pretty weak tea, that was and still is the dominant view of experts who treat this illness. (See Hilde Bruch's "The Golden Cage". It perfectly captures this view.)

In practice, this translated into therapies for anorexics in which families were told "not to make food an issue" and that their adolescent son or daughter was really expressing a need to "control" their environment. Any effort to actually feed the starving child was discouraged. Instead, parents were and are told that their child had to "choose" to get better first.

Lock and LeGrange are both research scientists and psychiatric practitioners who stumbled upon the research done at the Maudsley Hospital in London on eating disorders. The researchers at Maudsley did three novel things. First, they decided to be agnostic on the causes of anorexia. This freed them up to do a second thing; feed the starving child. In order to accomplish this, they had to do the third and final revolutionary thing which was to enlist the parents as part of the re-feeding process. In other words, the parents were now part of the cure, rather than part of the problem.

This stood current treatment for anorexics on its head. Amazingly, the researchers documented the most successful "cure" rate for any scientifically conducted study on anorexia treatment. "Help Your Teenager Beat an Eating Disorder" introduces parents to and guides them through the Maudsley approach.

This book was not written as a self-help manual, but it was written for parents and contains loads of practical advice garnered from years of working directly with sufferers and their parents. For example, they address common questions such as: should my child weigh himself; do I take her grocery shopping with me;establish a regular pattern of eating; what to do about binging and purging; how should one deal with friends; what to do about new clothes;and, naturally, how to help your child eat more.

What you won't find is endless but unprovable psycho-babble that makes you sick with guilt over why your child won't eat. L and L address the significant emotional issues attendant with the disease, but they don't blame the parents for them; they blame the illness. I cannot begin to tell you how refreshing that is.

This is a book that demands a place in the home of every parent trying to help their son or daughter caught in the misery of an ED. It offers not just hope, but solutions.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very Helpful Book 16 juillet 2006
Par Rebecca - Publié sur
I bought this book last summer (July 2005) just before my daughter was hospitilized with an (ED)eating disorder. I tried outpatient counseling, visiting a dietician,(begging too)and encouragement. I was depressed, frustrated, sad, and angry that my daughter was not improving despite my efforts to help her--and I realized she had an ED early.

This book gave me insight and understanding to circumstances that may cause an ED and anecdotes that may relate to your child or family. It does not parent-bash, blaming failure on the parent. I shared this book with other parents with kids in ED treatment--and many bought it after looking at the content. I am grateful for the book and the treatment she received. The treatment was family-centered (mentioned in book) and involved the entire family. Treatment was difficult and necessary to save my child's life.

Parents, watch out for the internet: xanga, my space, other sites. There are communities of so- called "Ana and mia's", giving advice, and thinspirations to help your child continue their sickness.

This book is the best book on the market. It is not a manual for treatment alone, but an aide to understand and get help.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Must read for parents of ED Sufferers 23 mai 2005

Excellent advice by leading researchers at Stanford and U of Chicago in eating disorders. The authors offer practical advice on helping your child recover from this strange disease.

The commonsense approach of "supported nutrition" also known as the "Maudsley method" has been clinically proven more effective than the tradition therapy approaches.

There is much "psycho-babble" about the causes of this disease which can lead to many deadend approaches to treatment.

You cannot afford to wait. Get your child treatment today and read this book. Another highly recommended is "Eating with your Anorexic" by Laura Collins which is more of a journal of her families odessy with ED treatment. Check out her site (...)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The best single book for parents of an anorexic. 17 juillet 2011

Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
When my daughter spiraled down into anorexia we checked out 6 books and purchased another 7. This was the single most helpful of all of them. We got information from each of them, but this one synthesizes the information in understandable and concise form. Our daughter got down to a Body Mass Index of 14 and was at the threshold of hospitalization. We committed our family fully to the Maudsley Method which James Lock is a leading expert in. We have had tremendous success over two months and feel like we are firmly on the recovery track. I can not stress strongly enough that you the family have to become in charge of your daughter's recovery. Commit yourselves 100% to full nutrition every meal, every day. There will be tantrums, 3 hour breakfasts, crying, horrible things said by the daughter, but . . . . . . eventually she eats more . . . then more . . . then she slowly then steadily gains to a health weight. As she gains the behaviors and moods associated with starvation go away. Do not count on any of your care team being familiar with or supportive of Maudsley methodology. You might have to change the treatment team or become the leader. Traditional teaching stresses that eating disorders may be caused by family dysfunction or abuse or underlying mental illness. Maudsley does not focus on the why at first, but rather concentrates on re-feeding to restore normal brain function. Then any underlying issues can be addressed successfully without the effects of starvation getting in the way. Remember, you probably did not cause your daughter to have anorexia. But, you can help her recover.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Scientifically proven to help an extremely tough situation 10 juillet 2006

This book can save your child's life. The information in this book is the very best available. Now is the time to get this book if your child has been wrestling with an eating disorder. The information is based on good science, and I believe that this information is the most up to date out there. ANYONE with an eating disorder could benefit from their caregiver reading this book. Don't put your kid on antideppresant drugs. Get this book instead and do what it says. You will be glad you did!
