Abstract
Focusing on the family, this book teaches parents how to examine and understand their family’s approach to food and body-image issues and its effect on their child’s behavior. Parents learn to identify an eating disorder early, to establish healthy attitudes toward food at a young age, and to intervene in a non-threatening, non-judgmental way. The authors concentrate on teens, the age group most often affected by eating disorders, as well as younger children. Individual chapters cover boys at risk, relapse training, dealing with friends, school, and summer camp, and much more. The book includes an appendix and sections on further reading, organizations and websites, residential and hospital programs, and references.

Abstract
Ruby hates herself so much that she often feels more like a piece of rubbish than a little girl. Sometimes Ruby feels so miserable that she wants to sleep and sleep and never wake up again. Then Ruby meets Dot and, over time, Dot helps Ruby to move from self-hate to self-respect. After a very important dream, and help from Dot, Ruby finds her voice and her anger, and stands up to the bullies. She makes new friends and knows what it's like to feel happy for the first time in her life. The guidebook helps children who: don't like themselves or feel there is something fundamentally wrong with them; have been deeply shamed; have received too much criticism or haven't been encouraged enough; let people treat them badly because they feel they don't deserve better; do not accept praise or appreciation because they feel they don't deserve it; feel defeated by life, fundamentally unimportant, unwanted or unlovable; bully because they think they are worthless or think they are worthless because they are bullied; and, feel they don't belong or do not seek friends because they think no-one would want to be their friend.

Abstract
Eating disorders in the family can make meal times extremely difficult for youth, parents, and siblings. This video demonstrates strategies that can be used before, during, and after meals to provide structure and support for youth with eating disorders. The strategies presented in this video are supported by research and can help meal times go more smoothly, with less anxiety and fewer arguments, and at the same time, help youth to complete their meals.
Parents and caregivers share their experiences with four stages of providing meal support: meal planning, meal preparation, supported eating, and post meal.
The video includes scenarios demonstrating how parents and caregivers can use the strategies presented to provide structure and support during meal times to youth at home.

Eating disorders in the family can make meal times extremely difficult for youth, parents, and siblings. This video demonstrates strategies that can be used before, during, and after meals to provide structure and support for youth with eating disorders. The strategies presented in this video are supported by research and can help meal times go more smoothly, with less anxiety and fewer arguments, and at the same time, help youth to complete their meals.
Parents and caregivers share their experiences with four stages of providing meal support: meal planning, meal preparation, supported eating, and post meal.
The video includes scenarios demonstrating how parents and caregivers can use the strategies presented to provide structure and support during meal times to youth at home.

Abstract
This book will be useful to parents and educators working with children and adults suffering from autistic spectrum disorders (ASD). Of the changes made to this edition, first and foremost is the terminology: ASD, which incorporates autism, Asperger's syndrome, and other pervasive developmental disorders into one diagnosis, is now an accepted umbrella term for those conditions. In a very readable format, Waltz covers the latest developments in medical and therapeutic interventions and environmental links, insurance, education, family issues, support, and resources for the English-speaking world. Throughout, she intersperses numerous personal accounts from interviews held with families, caretakers, and ASD patients. Those firsthand accounts allow the human side of the diagnosis to shine through and illustrate the wide variety of experiences of living with ASD.
