This volume provides detailed descriptions of all the major treatments for eating disorders, presented by the leading clinicians and researchers in the field. Initial chapters cover diagnosis and assessment, as well as the proper sequencing of treatment approaches. Emphasizing clinical utility, expert contributors then review cognitive-behavioral, psychoeducational, interpersonal, family, feminist, group, and psychodynamic approaches. Separate chapters address cognitive-behavioral and feminist therapies for body image disturbances; particulars of inpatient treatment and partial hospitalization; and pharmacological management of eating disorders. Finally, a special section describes strategies for adapting treatment to deal with such problems as sexual abuse, substance abuse, concurrent medical conditions, personality disorders, prepubertal eating disorders, treatment refusal. Therapeutic approaches are described in step-by-step detail and illustrated with extensive case material—several chapters function as self-contained treatment manuals—enabling practitioners to easily learn and implement each model as well as adapt it to suit the needs of individual patients.

"The chapters are very well referenced and are written by experts who are both clinicians and researchers, which gives readers exceptional insight into the specific therapy being described. Each chapter includes case studies and excerpts of therapist-client dialogue that bring the therapies to life....Especially helpful are the treatment plan and protocols included as appendixes[sic] to specific chapters....This text is a powerful handbook of substantiated treatment approaches."
