My Kid is Back: Empowering Parents to Beat Anorexia Nervosa by June Alexander & Daniel le Grange, ISBN 9780522856002

Early intervention with family-based treatment can greatly reduce the severity of anorexia nervosa in children and adolescents. The best outcome is for those whose illness is intervened within six months. Ten families are the book’s voice, and they lift the lid on what living with anorexia is really like. Parents describe their frustrations in seeking help for their child and sufferers describe this illness that slips into the brain and becomes part of one’s self. The families believe prompt recognition and intervention with family-based treatment greatly enhances recovery.

Family-based treatment offers hope by bringing back fundamental family principles empowering parents and supporting them and their children in their growth and development.

Professor le Grange describes the history of anorexia nervosa, its effect on the sufferer and the family, the development of the Maudsley Approach and ongoing research. The book lists illness symptoms, strategies for parents and carers to follow, and where to go for treatment and support. This book will appeal to families everywhere who find themselves caught up in the anorexic nightmare.
