One out of every one hundred young women is anorexic. Four out of every one hundred are bulimic. Overall, research suggests that eight million Americans-men and women-have an eating disorder. Yet in the face of these startling statistics, parents do not have a clear understanding of how to help their child overcome an eating disorder. In Conquering Eating Disorders, Susan Cooper, a licensed psychologist and group psychotherapist, and Peggy Norton, a dietician with thirty years of experience, bridge the gap between the statistics and the real-life issues to help teens and parents gain the communication skills necessary to support the healing process. Parents need to know that only in Conquering Eating Disorders will you hear directly from teens struggling with eating disorders and get expert advice on how to interpret and respond to what your teen is saying-even when they're not talking.
