Illustrating the “whats,” “whys,” and “how-tos” of the leading evidence-based treatments for eating disorders, this unique volume is organized around in-depth cases. A range of therapies are represented in sections covering behavioral, cognitive, affect-based, relational, and integrative approaches. Each section opens with an instructive overview by the editor. The expert contributors show what their techniques look like in action with patients struggling with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge-eating disorder, and related problems. Cases cover the entire process of treatment and include therapist-patient dialogues. The essential role of assessment in treatment planning and progress monitoring is highlighted, with detailed descriptions of relevant instruments and procedures.
