Eminently practical and authoritative, this comprehensive clinical handbook brings together leading international experts on eating disorders to describe the most effective treatments and how to implement them. Coverage encompasses psychosocial, family-based, medical, and nutritional therapies for anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge-eating disorder, and other eating disorders and disturbances. Especially noteworthy are "mini-manuals" that present the nuts and bolts of 11 of the treatment approaches, complete with reproducible handouts and forms. The volume also provides an overview of assessment, treatment planning, and medical management issues. Special topics include psychiatric comorbidities, involuntary treatment, support for caregivers, childhood eating disorders, and new directions in treatment research and evaluation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is a big book with a big task. Well-chosen authors contribute 35 chapters and over 550 pages of well-referenced text. In the world of systematic reviews and electronic literature searching, there is still an important role for a high-quality reference that offers not only data, but also perspective. This volume fills that role. It deserves to do well."--Bob Palmer, FRCPsych, Professor of Psychiatry, Department of Health Sciences, University of Leicester, United Kingdom

"A landmark contribution from internationally renowned clinical researchers. This practical volume informs the reader about state-of-the-art empirically based and promising treatments, and it provides a uniquely effective guide on how to deliver these treatments. A 'must-have' for clinicians, researchers, and students in the field."--David B. Herzog, MD, Endowed Professor of Psychiatry in the Field of Eating Disorders, Harvard Medical School

"Edited by two leaders in the field, with chapters from a 'who's who' of cutting-edge researchers and clinicians, this book is an outstanding resource. It is a top-rate presentation of all the needed information."--Kelly D. Brownell, PhD, Robert L. Flowers Professor of Public Policy and Dean, Sanford School of Public Policy, Duke University
