In Re-Thinking Eating Disorders: Language, Emotion, and the Brain, Barbara Pearlman integrates ideas from psychoanalysis, developmental psychology and cutting-edge neuroscience to produce a model of neural emotional processing which may underpin the development of an eating disorder.

Based on clinical observations over 30 years, this book explores how state change from symbolic to concrete thinking may be a key event that precedes an eating disorder episode. The book introduces this theory, and offers clinicians working with these challenging clients an entirely new model for treatment: internal language enhancement therapy (ILET). This easily teachable therapy is explored throughout the book with case studies and detailed descriptions of therapeutic techniques.

Re-Thinking Eating Disorders will appeal to students and practitioners working with this clinical group who are seeking an up-to-date and integrative approach to therapy.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"What's your gut feeling about this book?

Here's mine: this is an extraordinary book. It draws together an impressive literature spanning developmental neurobiology, neuropsychoanalysis, Kleinian theory and the latest eating disorder treatment outcome data. In this regard alone, the book offers an impressive distillation of some very diverse theory and research findings.

However, it goes much further than presenting a novel intersection of theory and practice representing the first serious attempt to develop a neuroscientifically-based treatment for people with eating disorders. It introduces Internal Language Enhancement Therapy (ILET) which covers all the major bases of contemporary eating disorders neuroscience and incorporates this knowledge into the treatment model. Recent work on mentalizing fits neatly with the ILET model; and in this regard the current model is in the `good company' of Winnicott, Fonagy, Target and Skadarud."
