“An outstanding group of contributors have joined forces to offer a comprehensive review of eating disorder assessment, from well-established interview and self-report instruments to cutting-edge technology such as ecological momentary assessment. This invaluable resource provides clear research and practice guidelines for investigators and clinicians in all areas of eating disorders. For students in clinical psychology or psychiatry, this definitive text will be of great use in graduate-level assessment courses or in more specialized courses on eating disorders.”

—Janet D. Latner, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Canterbury, New Zealand


“This book offers 'one-stop shopping' in that it neatly describes many issues that are relevant for diagnosing and treating eating disorders. From recognized experts, it offers a wealth of information for the clinician who is new to the field, and also is a resource for the experienced clinician. This excellent text should be on the bookshelf of everyone who treats anorexia and bulimia nervosa.”

—Walter H. Kaye, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine
