Inspired by the increasing need to consider developmental factors in understanding the etiology and treatment of mental diseases, The Oxford Handbook of Child and Adolescent Eating Disorders: Developmental Perspectives takes an innovative approach to topics surrounding eating disorders in children and early adolescents.
Acknowledging the distinct differences in the development and treatment of eating disorders across age ranges, this volume addresses developmental factors in clinical presentation, diagnosis, and treatment response in eating disorders.
With sections devoted to feeding disorders of infancy and younger children, eating problems of early childhood and the middle-school age period, early childhood and adolescent 'triggers' such as media exposure and family evolution, and future directions in developmental research for eating disorders, The Oxford Handbook of Child and Adolescent Eating Disorders: Developmental Perspectives is an authoritative work for the next decade of developmental research.

The book is easy to read and the chapters are organized fairly uniformly with abstract, key words, text, conclusion, and future directions. This excellent book espouses a developmental approach, which posits very different factors across early childhood, middle childhood, and adolescence. The authors explore epidemiology, assessment, and treatment fairly extensively. The topics are varied and from authors who are experts in this field. This is a valuable resource for
anyone who works with children. * Doody's Review *
