Eating Disorders: New Directions in Treatment and Recovery

Hardback
Fully revised to reflect changes in the field, this collection of essays by psychotherapists who specialize in the treatment of anorexia nervosa and bulimia explains in accessible and humane terms how the treatment process works and demonstrates strategies that lead to recovery. The book details the interaction between practitioner and patient, practitioner and practitioner, and family members. The collection, which draws upon the knowledge and experience of clinicians who have practiced at the Wilkins Center for Eating Disorders, also points up the advantages of a collaborative team, for both the patient and professionals.
