The editors have both worked in the field for fifteen years and have unrivalled experience of this particular population. The contributors are all clinicians or researchers with whom they have worked over the years and each brings a unique experience of their own area of expertise. Topics covered include an overview of eating disorders in this population, epidemiology, aetiology, prognosis and outcome, assessment (both physical and psychosocial), and management, including specific types of therapy. Additional chapters deal with schooling and ethical and legal issues. There are also contributions by a young person who had an eating disorder as a child and the mother of a young sufferer.
