Father Hunger

Posted By AUSSIEedfamily, Saturday, June 18, 2016
 

Title; Father Hunger

Author; Margo Maine, Ph.D

Publisher; Gürze Books

This book provides a clinician’s view of the part that fathers play in a daughter’s life as the author describes her experiences in treatment of eating disorders.  I decided to read this book because it was written by a very close friend & colleague of Professor Michael P. Levine, with whom I was collaborating to develop a Father & Professor presentation for the 2014 ANZAED Eating Disorders conference in Fremantle. Professor Levine was supportive of this book although I had also heard from others in the eating disorder parent/carer, environment that the book was not one they supported, as they felt it was a book in the parent blaming scenario. I needed to read it & discover for myself whether it was parent blaming or parent supportive.

It was with some trepidation that I commenced reading it. As a father who is supporting a daughter well down the path of recovery, I did not want to end up being traumatised & feeling that I had caused my daughter’s eating disorder. I was doing a lot of flying & had heaps of reading time.

The book describes the authors experiences in the treatment of eating disorders & endeavours to put her views on what influences she considers the father daughter dynamic has in relation to eating disorders when there is a varying level of disconnect between father & daughter. The level of disconnect described in the book varies from simply a father being very hard working & busy providing the family income & security to fathers who were busy personally, to neglectful fathers & those who become abusive in various forms verbal, physical, emotional & sexual.

I found the book enlightening and informative. There were some parts that gave me feelings of a level of failure as a father as I was one of the hard working busy ones often away from home earning an income & providing security. The start of this busy working away started just 6 months before my daughter was diagnosed with AN. Other parts gave me a feeling of being worthwhile as a father as it described the positive things a father can do & I was doing them. It also provided me with things that I can do to provide positives to the dynamics between my daughter & I.

I have provided feedback to the author regarding the perspective that some readers may view the book as parent blaming and that in future editions she may be able to dispel such perceptions & receive a positive response.

Since finishing reading the book & discussing it in the parent/carer forum I participate in, I have discovered some parents/carers who thought the book was very good & really helped them while others who thought the book was parent blaming & not a good read.

I am glad I read this book; it enlightened me in some areas & reinforced me in others.

Answers to Anorexia, by James Greenblatt

Posted By Admin, Wednesday, January 1, 2014
Updated: Saturday, August 16, 2014

From Dr. Greenblatt's Website:
Answers to Anorexia offers readers highly accessible information that may be helpful as either self-help or as an adjunct to professional treatment. It provides a holistic treatment plan involving an integrative medicine approach for men and women with anorexia. The treatment plan centers on restorative nutrition and precise medication for the many symptoms and illnesses that often accompany this life-threatening disease such as depression and anxiety. To be successful, Dr. Greenblatt explains, treatment needs to correct the physical damage and brain dysfunction of malnutrition. 

Listen to:
An audio interview by F.E.A.S.T. Founder, Laura Collins, with Dr. James Greenblatt about his book, "Answers to Anorexia." Recorded in October 2010, the author outlines an innovative protocol for anorexia treatment that involves nutritional supplementation, digestive enzymes, and individualized testing for the use of psychiatric medicines.

Biting The Hand That Starves You, by Richard Maisel, David Epston, Ali Borden

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, January 1, 2013
Updated: Saturday, August 16, 2014
Parent review:

A book for all those experiencing living ED the Carers/Parents & Professionals.


However for the ""Insiders"" as the book calls those with ED there is a need for caution as parts of the book may initiate ED activity. ""For Insiders"" its one for when they are well into recovery & to be read with careful supervision from clinicians.

Crave: Why You Binge Eat and How to Stop, by Dr. Cynthia Bulik

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, January 1, 2013
Updated: Saturday, August 16, 2014
From Amazon.com:
Genetic predisposition, brain chemistry, psychology, and cultural pressures increase a person’s susceptibility to BED, but bingeing is not inevitable. Crave helps readers understand why they crave specific foods, recognize what triggers their strong urges, and get control over their responses to those triggers. BED is highly treatable; Bulik shares with readers a set of easy-to-implement “curb the crave” techniques that has empowered patients at the U NC Eating Disorders Program and elsewhere to triumph over their binge eating. T hrough the stories of some of these patients—men and women, young and old—and with the guidance of Bulik, readers will develop effective strategies to successfully conquer their cravings and establish healthy eating and activity habits.

Eating Disorders in Childhood and Adolescence, by Bryan Lask, Rachel Bryant-Waugh

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, January 1, 2013
Updated: Saturday, August 16, 2014

From Amazon.com:
First published in 1993, this was the first book of its kind to explore eating disorders in children and young adolescents, a population that is very different from those in their late teens and adulthood.

The contributors’ experience and knowledge have increased and the field has moved forward over the past 20 years. This fully revised edition offers a distillation of current information relating to the younger population, and contains brand new chapters on areas of experience, research and practice including:

  • The perspective of a young person going through an eating disorder
  • Experiences of a parent
  • Updated information regarding advances from neuroscience
  • Therapeutic engagement
  • Cognitive remediation therapy

Eating Disorders in Childhood and Adolescence offers the reader knowledge, insight and understanding into this fascinating but challenging patient group. It has both a clinical and research focus and will be an essential text for a wide range of professionals, as well as being readable for parents of children suffering from eating disorders.
