June Alexander, Professor Daniel Le Grange
This practical guide provides a fuller understanding of anorexia nervosa and information about where to go for help.
When a child develops anorexia nervosa, parents often don't know where to turn for help.

This is a practical guide that provides a fuller understanding of anorexia nervosa and information about where to go for help. It also features the stories of ten families who describe how they coped and the journeys they have made in beating the illness.
