Abstract
My Kid is Back explains how family-based treatment can greatly reduce the severity of anorexia nervosa in children and adolescents, allowing the sufferer to return to normal eating patterns, and their families to return to normal family life.
In this book, ten families share their experiences of living with anorexia. Parents describe their frustrations in seeking help for their child and dealing with their behaviour and sufferers discuss how the illness gets into their mind and takes over their personality.
By focusing on the Maudsley family approach and expert advice from Professor Daniel Le Grange, and including clear lists of illness symptoms, strategies for parents and carers to follow, and information on getting further treatment and support, this book proves an essential resource for families who want to win the battle with anorexia nervosa.

Abstract
Today, buffeted by one food fad after another, America is suffering from what can only be described as a national eating disorder. Will it be fast food tonight, or something organic? Or perhaps something we grew ourselves? The question of what to have for dinner has confronted us since man discovered fire. But as Michael Pollan explains in this revolutionary book, how we answer it now, as the dawn of the twenty-first century, may determine our survival as a species. Packed with profound surprises, The Omnivore's Dilemma is changing the way we think about the politics, perils, and pleasures of eating.

Abstract
Bulimia Nervosa is a serious illness with potentially life threatening complications. Coping with Bulimia Nervosa can be overwhelming for youth and their families. Youth with Bulimia Nervosa may appear to have no difficulty eating but may be hiding significant emotional distress and chaotic eating patterns, including periods of severe food restriction. These patterns can have serious physical and emotional effects that lead to bingeing and purging. Youth may feel very ashamed and embarrassed about this behaviour, which can push them to restrict even more, creating cycles of negative feelings and behaviours which can be very difficult to change. Structure and support from caregivers can reduce these negative feelings and make it easier for youth to manage their behaviour. In "Supporting Youth with Bulimia Nervosa: Helpful Approaches for Families" you will hear from parents and youth about strategies that they found helpful while recovering from Bulimia Nervosa.
