“This is a recommended book. It would be a valuable addition to any graduate clinical psychology, social work, or psychiatric residency program where eating disorders and specifically, management of BN is discussed.”

Child and Family Behavior Therapy


“Written by an internationally renowned team of eating disorder experts, this book presents a cutting-edge approach to treating BN. ICAT-BN is founded on decades of scientific research into what works in the treatment of psychopathology, and introduces a novel framework for integrating new and established strategies and techniques. This gem of a book is a valuable resource for clinicians.”

—Ruth Striegel Weissman, PhD, Walter A. Crowell University Professor of the Social Sciences, Wesleyan University


“This manual intertwines clinical insights and extensive scientific inquiry. The authors have successfully mapped out their innovative intervention, clearly describing the processes and techniques needed for change and providing a practical plan. The book is rich with clinical examples and clever, meaningful teaching strategies. This is a wonderful addition to the clinician's toolkit and an example of successful translation for the scientist.”

—Janet Treasure, PhD, FRCP, FRCPsych, Director, Eating Disorders Research Unit, Kings College London, United Kingdom


“Wonderlich and colleagues provide elegant conceptual models of the onset and maintenance of BN, integrating findings from psychological science and their own innovative work on the moment-to-moment cognitive and emotional context of disordered eating behaviors. The models are linked to a series of therapeutic strategies and specific interventions, including reproducible patient handouts. A beautifully realized manual.”

—Marsha D. Marcus, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine


“Practical, comprehensive, evidence based—if you are going to buy one book on the treatment of BN, this should be it! The heart of the book is the detailed, practical recommendations for treatment that can only come from a group of highly experienced clinicians. ICAT-BN is a compelling integration of three decades of clinical research and practice by some of the field's most rigorous thought leaders. Wonderlich et al. artfully address the dual importance of behavioral symptom management and the often-neglected role of the therapeutic relationship in psychotherapy effectiveness. They also offer a unique perspective on emotional dysregulation as a trigger for binge eating.”

—Craig Johnson, PhD, FAED, Chief Science Officer and Director of the Family Institute, Eating Recovery Center, Denver, Colorado
