Abstract
Thoroughly revised and updated with the latest research and methodologies, the fourth edition of the classic guide written specifically for parents, friends, and caregivers of individuals with eating disorders.
For more than thirty years, this classic guide has been an essential resource for the ?silent sufferers??those affected by a loved one?s eating disorder. This revised edition put family and friends at the center of the treatment process, providing the latest information on the methods and practices available to facilitate the recovery process.
Surviving an Eating Disorder is the first book for family and friends to use a psychological perspective to understand eating disorders. Other treatment manuals or self-help books propose change but Surviving is the first to consider why change can be so hard for everyone involved. The factors that can hinder progress are discussed and the methods that can work are emphasized. *Illustrated with case examples, this fourth edition explains the latest treatments and provides the necessary tools to carefully evaluate what can be most effective for each reader?s individual care. The authors offer concrete advice and support, urging readers to care for both themselves and their relationships as they support their loved ones struggling with food and eating issues.

Abstract
This guide for families summarizes the results of an international consensus on the medical care of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). This effort was supported by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in collaboration with patient advocacy groups and the TREAT-NMD network. The main document is published in Lancet Neurology.
The recommendations are based on an extensive study by 84 international experts in DMD diagnosis and care chosen to represent a broad range of specialties. They independently ?rated? methods of care used in the management of DMD to say how ?necessary?, ?appropriate? or ?inappropriate? each one was at different stages of the course of DMD. In total they considered more than 70,000 different scenarios. This allowed them to establish guidelines that the majority agreed represented the best practice for DMD care.

Abstract
Eating disorders in the family can make meal times extremely difficult for youth, parents, and siblings. This video demonstrates strategies that can be used before, during, and after meals to provide structure and support for youth with eating disorders. The strategies presented in this video are supported by research and can help meal times go more smoothly, with less anxiety and fewer arguments, and at the same time, help youth to complete their meals.
Parents and caregivers share their experiences with four stages of providing meal support: meal planning, meal preparation, supported eating, and post meal.
The video includes scenarios demonstrating how parents and caregivers can use the strategies presented to provide structure and support during meal times to youth at home.

Abstract
Jon loves his life in the North. But when he feels a pain that won't go away, he must go to a children's hospital in the south to find out what is wrong. A doctor there tells Jon he has cancer and will have to stay at the hospital for a while. Suddenly Jon's life is upside down! But with a handful of tricks from the doctors and nurses, and new friends, Jon discovers ways to cope with some of the tricky parts of having cancer. Accompanied by a resource guide for parents and caregivers, including hospital and support information, Jon's Tricky Journey opens a conversation between Inuit children facing a cancer diagnosis and their families to help make a difficult and confusing time more manageable.

Abstract
Tells the story, from the perspective of an eleven-year-old boy, Alex, and his family, as they are rocked by suicide and reeling from the aftermath. Through Alex?s eyes, the reader will see the transformation of feelings after going through a suicide.
New to the third edition, each chapter ends with Alex reflecting 10 years later on his experience, introducing family and friends in his recollections. *Barbara Rubel has combined modern academic theories of grieving and then translated them into a readable story. The revised edition is an evidence-informed and contemporary treatment of a devastating form of loss that uses a hypothetical case study to render it in human terms. Through the story, the reader understands what suicide might be like for a family, how to make meaning in the loss, and ways to experience personal growth. *This self-help book was revised to provide guidance for clinicians (e.g., mental health providers, social workers, psychologists, school counselors, case managers) and families to help suicide loss survivors.
Part 1 offers a basic understanding of suicide postvention, suicide loss survivors, complicated grief, mourning theories, and the impact on clinician survivors. Chapters have been updated, based on mourning models and the latest research.
The chapters in Part 2 build upon one another sequentially, from the day of the suicide to the anniversary. At the end of each chapter, there are follow-up questions to explore in counseling sessions, support groups, therapy sessions, or at home. Also, at the end of each chapter, Alex, at the age of 21, reflects back on how his father?s death has changed his life, wounding him, but also helping him to grow.
