This book describes the application of cognitive behavioural principles to patients with a wide range of eating disorders - it covers those with straightforward problems and those with more complex conditions or co-morbid states. The book takes a highly pragmatic view. It is based on the published evidence, but stresses the importance of individualized, principle-based clinical work. It describes the techniques within the widest clinical context, for use across the age range and from referral to discharge. Throughout the text, the links between theory and practice are highlighted in order to stress the importance of the flexible application of skills to each new situation. Case studies and sample dialogs are employed to demonstrate the principles in action and the book concludes with a set of useful handouts for patients and other tools. This book will be essential reading for all those working with eating-disordered patients including psychologists, psychiatrists, nurses, counsellors, dieticians, and occupational therapists.

'Look no further; this cutting edge therapist guide is essential reading for all those working with eating disorders and will help from the point of referral to discharge. ... I have found myself dipping into this book and using some of the CBT techniques in my own clinical practice and would highly recommend this book to all health professionals working with eating-disordered patients, including clinical psychologists, psychological therapists, CBT therapists, occupational therapists, psychiatrists, nurses, counsellors and dieticians.' Psychological Medicine
'Overall this is an excellent resource for practitioners, densely packed with information yet clear and readable with ease of reference. It definitely fulfils the intention set out in the preface to be a 'clinician-orientated tool, useful in practice'. There are helpful analogies highlighted in the text, which can be lifted and used in other contexts ... It also brings together research and demonstrates how to use it in practice and there is creative use of many tools such as graphs, logs and worksheets, all of which are set out in as a photocopy resource in the back of the book. It provides a wealth of information for those who do not have a lot of experience in eating disorders and is a guide that is highly recommended and one which I will personally return to often.' Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy Review
'I was completely bowled over by this book: it is wonderful. A real treasure trove of clinical wisdom, embedded in the best of the available research evidence. Commendably, although this is a multi-author book, it is written with one voice. Written in a very accessible, straightforward language and immensely well structured, it contains information that will be very useful for both the novice and seasoned eating disorder therapist. ... This book will become a classic. I highly recommend it.' Journal of Psychosomatic Research
