Give Food A Chance (2019)
Give Food a Chance – now in its third revised edition – is a clinical guide to the treatment of eating disorders in children. Compiled from more than a decade of clinical experience treating eating disorders in children, Dr. O’Toole and her multidisciplinary team at Kartini Clinic’s family-based Day Treatment program take a critical look at past and current eating disorder treatment philosophies, rejecting discredited theories that claim such disorders are caused by poor parenting, issues of control, rejection of adulthood, or society’s oppression of women. Instead, the author argues persuasively that anorexia nervosa in particular is a chronic, highly heritable brain disorder. The book is written for any parents or professionals who care for children with eating disorders.
