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.

Outlining the findings of Dr. Michael Strober's original research--that there are three distinct stages of eating disorders--this book helps parents detect the severity of a child's weight issues and helps them steer her clear of--or maneuver herself off--a slippery slope that could lead to Anorexia Nervosa. Offering guidance on how to talk about weight and eating in ways that won't alienate the child in question, it also provides parents with the tools to help them cope with the emotional issues that are feeding their child's obsession with their weight. No matter where a child rests on the continuum of eating behaviors, this book is a useful aid for parents intent on keeping their children emotionally and physically healthy in a world of unprecedented pressures.
