Unlocking the Mysteries of Eating Disorders: A Life-Saving Guide To Your Child's Treatment and Recovery

by David B. Herzog, M.D., Debra L. Franko, Ph.D., Pat Cable, RN

Unlocking the Mysteries of Eating Disorders is an insightful and comforting guide, written by two internationally known experts, that shatters the myths, mysteries, and misconceptions surrounding eating disorders. The book includes the widest range of professional care options available, both psychotherapeutic and medicinal, as well as preventive solutions for children who display early warning signs. Most inspiring of all are the real-life stories of families who have faced eating disorders — and triumphed.

David B. Herzog, M.D., is the Harvard Medical School Endowed Professor of psychiatry in the field of eating disorders at Massachusetts General Hospital and the director of the Harris Center at Massachusetts General Hospital.

Debra L. Franko, Ph.D., is a professor in the Department of Counseling and Applied Educational Psychology at Northeastern University and the associate director of the Harris Center at Massachusetts General Hospital

Pat Cable, RN, is the director of publications at the Harris Center.

"Will my child get better? How? When?" If these questions are running through your mind, you are not alone. In fact, over 8 million people in the U.S. suffer from eating disorders and many more have substantially abnormal eating habits that don’t meet formal criteria for the illness. The challenges and fears you may be experiencing in coping with your afflicted child can feel overwhelming. Questions such as “why us” or “why this” may have led you in search of explanations for your child’s behaviors. Most of all, you are probably wondering how she can overcome her abnormal eating habits and how you can encourage her along the way. This book will help answer your questions."
