About the F.E.A.S.T. Family Guide Project:


The F.E.A.S.T. Family Guide Series is a project to publish small booklets for the use of families facing an eating disorder diagnosis in the household. These booklets are designed to be well-written and represent the best current science. Our editors for each booklet are leading clinicians and researchers in the field who volunteer their time and expertise. Each team of editors is chosen by F.E.A.S.T. and the lead editor of each project.

Future Plans...

F.E.A.S.T. has plans for several more booklets for this series. One will focus on nutrition, and the other on how extended family can support treatment. We welcome feedback on the booklets and volunteers to help distribute them. Booklets are currently available for electronic download. Printed copies will be distributed by F.E.A.S.T. volunteers at conferences, advocacy events, and to local parent support groups.

How do I get copies of the Family Guide Booklets?

For now, please Contact F.E.A.S.T. to request copies of the Family Guides, and watch this space for more information about ordering copies through our future storefront.

Donations to cover the costs of printing and shipping booklets are welcome.
