“How to Nourish Your Child Through an Eating Disorder: A Simple, Plate-by-Plate Approach to Rebuilding a Healthy Relationship with Food”
“How to Nourish Your Child Through an Eating Disorder: A Simple, Plate-by-Plate Approach to Rebuilding a Healthy Relationship with Food,” introduces our innovative new approach, the Plate-by-Plate Approach, geared for parents whose child is struggling with an eating disorder. Using just a plate, parents are taught how to renourish their child, without measuring or counting calories. We offer background information on eating disorder diagnoses, family-based treatment, medical management, how to talk about weight/dieting (hint: don’t), and how to rebuild one’s relationship with food. We have two expert forewords written by James Lock, MD, PhD and Neville H. Golden, MD from Stanford.
