Illustrating the "whats," "whys," and "how-tos" of the leading evidence-based treatments for eating disorders, this unique volume is organized around in-depth cases. A range of therapies are represented in sections covering behavioral, cognitive, affect-based, relational, and integrative approaches. Each section opens with an instructive overview by the editor. The expert contributors show what their techniques look like in action with patients struggling with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge-eating disorder, and related problems. Cases cover the entire process of treatment and include therapist-patient dialogues. The essential role of assessment in treatment planning and progress monitoring is highlighted, with detailed descriptions of relevant instruments and procedures.
"This outstanding casebook fills an important gap in the literature. It offers both a comprehensive account of the leading contemporary evidence-based treatments for eating disorders and an 'in-the-trenches' description (including session transcripts) of how to actually conduct them. Each chapter illustrates the use of objective measures to track symptom changes over the course of treatment. The contributors are expert clinician-researchers, and the cases are written in an engaging style. An excellent resource for trainees and experienced therapists alike."--Debra L. Safer, MD, ABPN, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Stanford University School of Medicine
