            Eating disorders are potentially life-threatening psychiatric illnesses commonly accompanied by serious medical problems. They typically appear during adolescence or early adulthood, a time when young people are heading to college or interviewing for a first job. Many people reco...ver fully from eating disorders, but others become chronically ill, and symptoms can continue into middle age and beyond. Written by leading authorities in eating disorders research and treatment, Eating Disorders: What Everyone Needs to Know answers common questions about eating disorders, including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder, as well as a newly described condition, avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID). Practical yet authoritative, the book defines the eating disorders, explains what we know about them based on the latest science, and describes how treatment works. Importantly, the book dispels common myths about eating disorders, such as the notion that they occur only amongst the affluent, that they affect only girls and women, or that they simply result from environmental factors such as the fashion industry and society's obsession with thinness. In reality, as the book explains, there is substantial evidence that eating disorders are brain-based illnesses that do not discriminate, and that they have been around for a very long time. Eating Disorders: What Everyone Needs to Know is essential reading for those seeking authoritative and current information about these often misunderstood illnesses.

            From Huckleberry Finn to Peter Pan, from the Famous Five to The Secret Garden, we have always envisaged an idyllic and happy childhood taking place outdoors. We nostalgically recall the pre-Internet, pre-Playstation days of tree-climbing, tadpole-fishing, bike-riding and wide gre...en spaces and agonise about the new generation's 'nature deficit disorder'. And yet, for all our middle-class handwringing over the disappearance of a greener yesteryear, the statistics are truly alarming: children can't identify the commonest of birds or plants, or even where food comes from; they are confined to home, shop, school and car. Children are increasingly alienated, not only from green spaces, but from the independence to play outside. The more we consider contemporary childhood, the more complex the picture becomes. In this timely and approachable book, Patrick Barkham explores the role that wild things - and the freedom to run wild - shape children and our understanding of the way children develop. It combines Patrick's own experience growing up in the countryside and his experience of bringing up his own children with vivid nature writing, rich cultural history and a measured investigation of the vast body of psychological and sociological research that has been carried out in this field. It will challenge cliches about nature and modernity while offering a rich and varied picture of childhood and the 'wild' child.

            A full-scale investigation of the controversial and often misunderstood science of attachment theory, inspired by the author's own experience as a parent and daughter. When award-winning editor, writer, researcher, and longtime Zen student Bethany Saltman gave birth to her daught...er, Azalea, she felt like there was something 'off' about her experience. She knew she loved her daughter, but would oftentimes be angry, short on patience, even unkind. She went in search of the reasons why, and how to better understand herself, her daughter, and their relationship. With the intensity of her spiritual pursuits, Saltman launched a broad inquiry into the science of attachment, a field of developmental psychology that answers the question of why - from an evolutionary point of view - love exists between parents and children. Specifically, Saltman focused on the data from a famous laboratory procedure, the 'Strange Situation', used around the world by scientists as the gold standard for measuring attachment security. A child and caregiver enter a room with two chairs and ordinary toys. Through a series of orchestrated comings and goings, the nature of the pair's relationship is revealed. What Saltman saw by studying the Strange Situation is that love is unbreakable. Each and every one of us - including her - is built for it. In this intimate, rigorous, and deeply personal rendering, Saltman boldly asks science to answer to love, and discovers that while our behaviour as parents is important, attachment research insists that what matters most is the way we think about our attachments, transmitted mind to mind from generation to generation. This is excellent news. After all, as Saltman's decades of Zen practice tell her and her readers, the one thing completely within our power to change is our minds. Readers will also be given the tools with which to interpret and better understand their own relationships. More than just a memoir or biography, Strange Situation offers fresh insi
