Eating and Growth Disorders in Infants and Children

Eating and Growth Disorders in Infants and Children

September 1991 | 112 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Do certain eating disorders directly correlate with neglect and abuse? What do eating and growth disorders have in common? Are some treatment methods more successful than others in treating such disorders? Exploring these and other questions, this volume examines the relevant literature on each major eating and growth disorder from infancy to childhood.

Anorexia nervosa, obesity, failure to thrive and psychosocial dwarfism are among the major disorders considered. The author describes the emergence and course of each specific disorder, discusses known or suspected risk factors, and examines unresolved clinical and research issues. Woolston also stresses the advantages of using a multidisciplinary team approach.
