Surviving an Eating Disorder has become a classic since it was first published in 1988. It was one of the first books to offer effective support and solutions for parents, spouses, friends, and all others who are the "silent sufferers" of eating disorders. This revised edition is updated with the latest information on what methods and practices work best for families, helping readers take new actions that will encourage the recovery process. The most notable development in this world since the book was revised in 1997 is the growing popularity of an extreme treatment wherein parents oversee the feeding habits of the eating disordered individual. In this new edition, Dr. Brisman, who has written the new material for the book, responds to this development. Instead of telling families to oversee feeding as a rule, she advocates a more individualistic approach, encouraging family members to try different methods to see which works best

Michele Siegel, Ph.D., initiated the idea for this book and was co-founder with Judith Brisman of the Eating Disorder Resource Center. She died in 1993.
