In the treatment of Anorexia Nervosa, delivering psychological interventions in a group format can bring unique benefits in addition to those associated with working with patients individually. These include: sharing experiences and learning from others in a safe and therapeutic environment, becoming accustomed to being with other people and practising interpersonal skills. However, these aspects of group treatment also represent a challenge for group facilitators as it is exactly these interpersonal and relational demands that patients find difficult to tolerate. Facilitators are likely to be confronted with low motivation, or complete disengagement, as a result of the discomfort evoked by spending time in psychological groups. Nonetheless, once these difficulties are successfully overcome, the group setting can be effectively utilised to address the specific aims of a given psychological intervention, as well as tapping into these wider benefits

Drawing upon research carried out by the Maudsley national inpatient eating disorders programme, Brief Group Psychotherapy for Eating Disorders brings together expert contributions in order to review the evidence base, as well as discussing how the challenges of the group setting can be overcome. This book outlines newly-developed protocols for group interventions aimed at providing brief but effective treatment for an increased numbers of patients, and addresses the need to develop and evaluate cost effective psychological interventions for patients with Anorexia Nervosa.

Brief Group Psychotherapy for Eating Disorders is designed to offer therapists, clinicians, and researchers in the field a synopsis of the available evidence along with guidance on how to put theory into practice effectively. It will also be an invaluable resource for students, trainees and teachers in the clinical, counselling, psychology, psychiatry, nursing, occupational therapy and other allied professions.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"A decade or so ago, research into anorexia nervosa - especially clinical research - had a stagnant feel to it. Recently there has been an increasing stream of new work and fresh thinking. Kate Tchanturia's work on cognitive style is a leading example. Her personal activity has flowed from neuropsychological description and theorising through to the development of brief focused treatments and the beginning of their evaluation. Dr Tchanturia is based at the Maudsley Hospital in London which has often been a bubbling caldron of ideas and innovation. It describes interventions that have been used with inpatients with anorexia nervosa but they are of wider relevance. I recommend it to anyone who is tasked with helping people with this difficult to treat disorder." - Professor Bob Palmer, Consultant Psychiatrist, UK

"Unfortunately, inpatient treatment for severe eating disorders is often necessary. How best to make use of this inpatient treatment remains an important clinical need. Kate Tchanturia has used her many years of clinical experience and research as well as those of her excellent professional colleagues to put together this enormously helpful book to illustrate the types of group interventions most likely to be helpful to inpatients. Clinicians working in inpatient services for eating disorders will be highly rewarded by studying this highly recommended book." - Professor James Lock, Stanford University USA
