This is the latest version, fully brought up to date in July 2019 (ignore the publication date)

The most effective treatment for eating disorders is family-based, and parents play an essential role. Yet most struggle to know what to do and how to do it.

With a wealth of practical examples and tips that have helped many tens of thousands of relieved parents, Eva Musby guides you through each stage of your son or daughter's recovery. She provides solace and confidence, while addressing the real-life questions that parents struggle with.

The practical and emotional strategies in every chapter rest on up-to-date knowledge distilled from published research, from families, and from therapists worldwide. These pages will boost your effectiveness with an excellent treatment team, and will also help you succeed when you don't have access to cutting-edge care. With her lived experience and that of the hundreds of parents she has coached, this book will empower you to be effective right away, from the first successful meal all the way through to recovery.

  • Make meals work in spite of your child's resistance
  • Deal with distress, inflexibility, exercise compulsion, bingeing and purging
  • Don’t stop at weight-restoration – skilled support all the way to recovery
  • What to say and what not to say in difficult situations
  • Actively support your child all the way to recovery and prevent relapse
  • Recognise the treatments that work and the ones that don’t
  • Grow your own emotional resources

This book is recommended by experts on family-based treatment (FBT, or 'Maudsley'), the evidence-based approach recommended by all major health institutions. It is used by parents and clinicians alike.

"Finally! I have read anything and everything on anorexia and this is the most helpful by far"

Review:

"Compelling and heartening ... A highly readable volume that offers practical solutions for parents ... Therapists and other clinicians can learn from this book - about how we might better help families to understand dilemmas and develop possible solutions"
James Lock, MD, PhD, Professor of Psychiatry and Pediatrics and Director of the Eating Disorder Program at Stanford University School of Medicine.

"Your book is packed with helpful information for parents and has been brilliant for my patients and for our team. The book and video can help to sustain the family until we meet them again. I also show the video in multi-family groups and in teaching the Maudsley approach to other professionals around the country."
Esther Blessitt, Senior Systemic Psychotherapist, writing on behalf of the Child and Adolescent Eating Disorders Service (CAMHS), Maudsley Hospital, London.

“This is amazing! I am truly gobsmacked. I have devoured (!) the excellent chapter on helping your child to eat, with the superb bungee jumping analogy. I’d like to share it with our carers’ group. If I am invited to review your book for any of the journals you may be sure I will give it a very positive review.”
Dr E Jane B Morris, Consultant Psychiatrist, The Eden Unit for eating disorders, Royal Cornhill NHS Hospital, Aberdeen and Chair of the Scottish Eating Disorders Interest Group (SEDIG)

“As a team dedicated to family based treatment, we have been really impressed by the information and support in your book and frequently recommend it to parents and carers of the young people we treat.”
Marc Clegg, Clinical Nurse Specialist in adolescent eating disorders, Parkview Clinic, Birmingham Children’s Hospital NHS trust

"This is by far, by leagues, by legions, the most practical and outstanding advice for parents or caregivers battling an eating disorder in their child [...] I will be recommending this to every parent or caregiver I encounter in my practice, as well as every health provider working with our patients.  It is that good." Dr Rebecka Peebles, MD, Co-Director, Adolescent Medicine, Eating Disorder Assessment and Treatment Program, The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia
