This indispensable manual presents the Maudsley method, the leading family-based treatment for adolescents with anorexia nervosa (AN). What sets this approach apart is the central role played by parents throughout treatment. The authors are prominent experts who describe how to mobilise families to promote the patient's weight restoration and healthy eating, improve parent–child relationships, and get adolescent development back on track. Each phase of therapy is described in session-by-session detail. In-depth case illustrations show how to engage clients while flexibly implementing the validated treatment procedures.

New to This Edition
- Reflects the latest knowledge on AN and its treatment, including additional research supporting the approach.
