Surviving Your Daughter’s Eating Disorder

Anguish, guilt, anger, fear, and hopelessness are words often used by mothers who suffer alongside a daughter with an eating disorder. Mothers care for the emotional, physical, and spiritual needs of their children, but who cares for them? Cathy Robinson watched her daughter starve herself until she was near death. The resulting helplessness was almost too much for a mother to bear. Making matters worse was the feeling that she was utterly alone in her guilt and pain. She needed others to identify with and help her through this difficult time. A Melody of Hope: Surviving Your Daughter’s Eating Disorder features inspirational true stories written by mothers of daughters who have recovered from eating disorders; they seek to provide encouragement, hope, and support to mothers beginning their journey. Told with breathtaking honesty and insight, these stories represent some of the many experiences shared by these mothers. For a mother coming to terms with her daughter’s illness, these stories represent a welcome community of understanding. “There are very few books that feature families, and fewer still recounting success stories. Far too many are stories written about the tragedy a family experiences when a family member dies as a result of the disorder, not about the much larger community that experiences success. Hope is what people need during those periods when it seems the disorder will never be overcome, and hope is what this book offers.” —Bryan Gusdal, MA, Program founder/director, Westwind Eating Disorder Recovery Centre, Brandon, Manitoba

Eating disorders (EDs) affect at least 11 million people in the United States each year and spread across age, race, ethnicity and socio-economic class. While professional literature on the subject has grown a great deal in the past 30 years, it tends to be exclusively research-based and lacking expert clinical commentary on treatment. This volume focuses on just such commentary, with chapters authored by both expert clinicians and researchers. Core issues such as assessment and diagnosis, the correlation between EDs and weight and nutrition, and medical/psychiatric management are discussed, as are the underrepresented issues of treatment differences based on gender and culture, the applications of neuroscience, EDNOS, comorbid psychiatric disorders and the impact of psychiatric medications. This volume uniquely bridges the gap between theoretical findings and actual practice, borrowing a bench-to-bedside approach from medical research. Includes real-world clinical findings that will improve the level of care readers can provide, consolidated in one place Underrepresented issues such as gender, culture, EDNOS and comorbidity are covered in full Represents outstanding scholarship, with each chapter written by an expert in the topic area

Do you suspect that your loved one has an eating disorder, or have you received the diagnosis already? The reality of eating disorders can feel devastating, but you need not feel despondent. When you are desperate and hopeless, you need honest, practical, everyday insight to help you understand the situation. Above all, you are looking for direction and hope. You want to know if the situation can turn around. Is there recovery and healing? This book will offer you hope. It will also expose the reality of eating disorders and shed light on how they take hold in the mind of the sufferer. You will come to understand your role as a witness and be guided through the feelings of guilt that most people experience. Your love and your constant, non-judgemental presence can be the strength your loved one needs to guide them through recovery. There is a lot of ignorance around eating disorders, and sufferers are often stigmatized, so many families don't know where to turn to and suffer in silence. This book explains the basics of anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder in an easy to understand language. This book is not about theory; it has a practical approach. It includes warning signs, physiological, behavioral and psychological symptoms, and also debunks the common myths around eating disorders. It also offers you guidance on how to handle your loved one, and how to cope with a situation you probably don't understand. There are no easy answers for a person who loves someone who has an eating disorder, and this book does not claim to offer any easy solutions. It is a practical guide to beginning to understand a complicated mental illness that can, with the right approach, patience and love get turned around. Your loved one can recover and go into recovery. If your loved one has the right attitude, is offered love and support by family and friends, and keeps to a daily recovery program, recovery can be life-long, and they can lead a happy and healthy life.

Are you struggling with Family Based Treatment? Family Based Treatment (FBT) is viewed as the gold standard in treating adolescent Anorexia Nervosa and it currently produces the best evidence-based outcomes.

This "skills-based manual" clearly explains the treatment, providing invaluable information to help parents through each component. It outlines the obstacles and all the anorexic behaviors that will impede treatment and recovery. The aim of this manual is to ensure parents remain one step ahead of anorexia and that they "hit the ground running." This book is a valuable resource for parents commencing FBT and for parents struggling during treatment. It offers clear, practical advice and empowers parents to confront whatever the illness throws at them.

The number of eating disorders patients presenting with symptoms of self-harm is growing quickly, and yet there is surprisingly little known about this unique population. Self-Harm Behavior and Eating Disorders explores the prevalent but largely uncharted relationship between self-injury behaviors and eating disorders symptoms. In the first major book to focus on this area, a renowned group of international scholars and practitioners addresses the subject from a variety of theoretical and practical perspectives. The book is categorized into sections covering epidemiology, psychodynamics, assessment, and a final section covering potential treatment options, including dialectical behavioral therapy, cognitive therapy, interventions strategies, group therapy, and pharmacological approaches. This unrivaled collection of case studies, theoretical exploration, and practical application forms a benchmark for the field, and offers a stepping-stone for new research and innovative treatment strategies. In an area with little available information, previously spread out among diffuse sources, this volume represents the state-of-the-field resource for anyone working with complex eating disorders patients.

Body-States:Interpersonal and Relational Perspectives on the Treatment of Eating Disorders

Author: Jean Petrucelli

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN:

Category: Psychology

Page: 330

View: 334

In this edited volume, Jean Petrucelli brings together the work of talented clinicians and researchers steeped in working with eating disordered patients for the past 10 to 35 years. Eating disorders are about body-states and their relational meanings. The split of mindbody functioning is enacted in many arenas in the eating disordered patient’s life. Concretely, a patient believes that disciplining or controlling his or her body is a means to psychic equilibrium and interpersonal effectiveness. The collected papers in Body-States: Interpersonal and Relational Perspectives on the Treatment of Eating Disorders elaborates the essential role of linking symptoms with their emotional and interpersonal meanings in the context of the therapy relationship so that eating disordered patients can find their way out and survive the unbearable. The contributors bridge the gaps in varied protocols for recovery, illustrating that, at its core, trust in the reliability of the humanness of the other is necessary for patients to develop, regain, or have - for the first time - a stable body. They illustrate how embodied experience must be cultivated in the patient/therapist relationship as a felt experience so patients can experience their bodies as their own, to be lived in and enjoyed, rather than as an ‘other’ to be managed. In this collection Petrucelli convincingly demonstrates how interpersonal and relational treatments address eating problems, body image and "problems in living." Body States: Interpersonal and Relational Perspectives on the Treatment of Eating Disorders will be essential reading for psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and a wide range of professionals and lay readers who are interested in the topic and treatment of eating disorders.
