Description

"With his evidence-based, 'enhanced' treatment, Fairburn takes CBT to a new level. This book is written explicitly for clinicians, who will find the clearly written, practical guidance invaluable. Of particular interest are the authoritative description of the psychopathology of eating disorders and the lucid analysis of the management and treatment of underweight patients and those with multiple comorbidities. This is the definitive clinical account of CBT for eating disorders."--G. Terence Wilson, PhD, Oscar K. Buros Professor of Psychology, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey

"Over the past 30 years, Fairburn has made immense contributions to our understanding and treatment of patients with eating disorders. This timely, clearly written, immensely informative, and very user-friendly book provides just what the clinician needs--a practical guide to all phases of treatment. Outlining his transdiagnostic model, Fairburn describes the processes that underlie all eating disorders and gives specific examples of how to assess, educate, and help patients with any eating disorder. Treatment is divided into stages, with clear guidelines for exactly what to say or do. This book will quickly become the preferred clinical guide in the eating disorders field. Fairburn and his colleagues should be commended for bringing state-of-the-art research to state-of-the-art practice. Bravo!"--Robert L. Leahy, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, Weill Cornell Medical College, New York Presbyterian Hospital

"Another milestone by the field's foremost pioneer, this book explains how to treat eating disorders in exquisite detail, and does so with a rich theoretical and empirical foundation as its basis. This will be the authoritative volume for many years to come."--Kelly D. Brownell, PhD, Robert L. Flowers Professor of Public Policy and Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience, Duke University

"From the most prominent group in the world studying the nature and treatment of eating disorders comes this cutting-edge treatment guide, which spans all eating disorder diagnoses as well as conditions that fall outside current diagnostic criteria. Based on a solid empirical foundation, the transdiagnostic enhanced CBT approach will immediately become the gold standard for the treatment of eating disorders."--David H. Barlow, PhD, ABPP, Professor Emeritus of Psychology and Psychiatry and Founder, Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders, Boston University
