A New View on Childhood Eating Disorders

Jessica Kingsley Publishers
Drawing on over a decade's experience as director of The Kartini Clinic, Julie O'Toole offers a fresh perspective on childhood eating disorders and invaluable insights for parents and professionals. Describing the philosophy behind The Kartini Clinic's world-renowned treatment protocol, O'Toole presents compelling evidence that childhood eating disorders have a neurological rather than a psycho-social basis, and explains what this means for treatment. She describes what patients and families can expect from treatment, signs, and symptoms indicating the need for hospitalization, The Kartini Clinic's ground-breaking Meal Plan and approach to 'capping' weight gain, and advice on how to recognise a relapse.
Julie O'Toole, MD, MPH CEDS is founder and Chief Medical Officer of Kartini Clinic for Disordered Eating in Portland, Oregon. She is a board certified pediatrician and has been in private pediatric practice for more than two decades. She is a member of the Academy for Eating Disorders (AED), the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Society for Adolescent Medicine, NEDA (National Eating Disorders Association), and a certified IAEDEP provider. She also has a master's degree in public health (international health).
