“This book offers numerous insights for therapists….The extensive use of excerpts from clinical practice (from both actual and composite client sessions) bring the chapters to life in a way that allows the reader to experience how the interventions may be used in practice….I found this book informative and constructive in thinking about how I might develop my clinical work with clients presenting with eating disorders. Each chapter is well referenced and offers enough depth of description to allow the practitioner to take something away to use in his or her own practice….This is a well-presented and information-packed book for anyone interested in working effectively with clients presenting with eating disorders.”

“This outstanding casebook fills an important gap in the literature. It offers both a comprehensive account of the leading contemporary evidence-based treatments for eating disorders and an 'in-the-trenches' description (including session transcripts) of how to actually conduct them. Each chapter illustrates the use of objective measures to track symptom changes over the course of treatment. The contributors are expert clinician-researchers, and the cases are written in an engaging style. An excellent resource for trainees and experienced therapists alike.”

“A practical guide for students and practitioners seeking to expand their base of clinical knowledge.

“In this exceptional volume, prominent authorities in the field of eating disorders illustrate their distinct approaches to treatment. The cases show in detail how to assess and treat eating disorders. Clinicians can learn to deliver treatment effectively—including what to say and do—no matter which treatment approach they choose. Based on an empirical foundation, this book will be invaluable to mental health practitioners.”

—Sabine Wilhelm, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School; Chief of Psychology, Massachusetts General Hospital


“This innovative book provides a unique integration of clinical techniques, treatment description, and in-depth case material. The chapters provide comprehensive information, enabling the reader to understand not only the content of each psychotherapeutic approach, but also how to implement the interventions. Notably, chapter authors are experts in both established and emerging evidence-based eating disorder treatments. Eloquently written, this casebook is an essential resource for clinicians, researchers, trainees, and students in the field of eating disorders. It is a significant, invaluable contribution.”
