For parents of a child with an eating disorder, the most crucial question is "What do we do now?" In this poignant, informative book, Laura Collins shares how she and her husband discovered the answer for themselves—and most significantly, for their anorexic fourteen-year-old daughter. It is a chronicle of how they applied a home-based treatment method known as the Maudsley approach, a nontraditional but highly effective way to treat a disease that is well known but largely misunderstood.
By questioning the healthcare orthodoxy and learning about their daughter's disease, the Collinses helped her recover. This inspiring book tells you how they succeeded and offers a new approach to dealing with this deadly illness.
