About the Author

Rachel Bryant-Waugh is a Consultant Clinical Psychologist with over 30 years of experience, specialising in the study and treatment of feeding and eating disorders in children and young people. She is an internationally renowned expert with a high level of clinical and research activity in this field.


"ARFID Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder: A Guide for Parents and Carers is an outstanding resource designed to help parents/carers understand the complexities of a diagnosis of ARFID, its consequences and treatment. This accessible guide combines clinical cases and up-to-date research. Bryant-Waugh's depth of experience working with children and families with ARFID brilliantly captures how to make sense of the everyday challenges that a diagnosis of ARFID brings to children and their families. This 'go-to' resource fills a much needed gap in providing parents/carers with strategies in supporting their child with ARFID."
Debra K. Katzman, MD, Professor of Pediatrics, Hospital for Sick Children and University of Toronto, Canada

"This is a brilliantly written, clear, practical and engaging book by the world-expert in the field. It uniquely combines research and clinical wisdom, illustrated by multiple varied examples, to provide a comprehensive understanding of the problem and how to address it. The 5-step approach is exceptionally valuable with sequential guidance about how to enable positive change. It is essential reading for any parent or practitioner wanting to help children overcome these difficulties and is a fantastic resource that has the potential to transform lives."
Roz Shafran, Professor of Translational Psychology, UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health, London, UK

"This is a long overdue guide for parents. Dr Bryant-Waugh has been a leading clinical and research expert in feeding difficulties for many years, and it is pleasing to see this wealth of experience and advice in one volume. I have no doubt it will be extremely helpful for families and children with ARFID. The suggested approaches are positive, non-blaming and focused on hope, for this is key as many children will manage and improve, but a whole family and inspiration of confidence are needed. This book provides both."
Dr Lee Hudson, Consultant Paediatrician, Great Ormond Street Hospital, London, UK
