Schema Therapy for Eating Disorders - (Paperback)
About this item
"Schema therapy has become increasingly popular as a treatment for personality disorders and other chronic conditions. This book presents the application of schema therapy to a challenging group of disorders with a high comorbidity with personality disorders: eating disorders. Written by experts in both schema therapy and eating disorders, this book is an essential guide for those that want to extend their insight in and therapeutic possibilities for the more challenging patients with eating disorders. A must-have for those looking for a treatment method that integrates treatment of eating problems with treatment of personality problems." - Arnoud Arntz, Professor of Clinical Psychology, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands
"Think for a moment. What do you want when you invest the time (and money) to read a practitioner book? You do not want another academic steeped in theory with only the distant memory of practice. This book gathers the luminaries of the schema therapy world to help you better treat eating disorders. All 'present tense' practitioners. Read and learn." - Professor Bruce A. Stevens, PhD (Boston University, 1987), Clinical Psychologist and Research Academic at Charles Sturt University, Canberra, Australia
"This impressive volume details the application of schema therapy to eating disorders which is considered to be one of the most complex and difficult to treat disorders, not least because of the high rate of comorbidity with personality disorders.
The book provides a clear and up-to-date overview of theory and research in schema therapy and eating disorders. A detailed description of how to deliver the powerful schema therapy treatment strategies form a central portion of the book accompanied with rich clinical illustrations, making it essential reading for practising schema therapists working with clients with eating disorders. I thoroughly recommend it." - Dr. Vartouhi Ohanian, Consultant Clinical Psychologist and Director of Schema Therapy UK
"This book represents a valuable and timely addition to the literature. It is written in an accessible style by experienced clinicians. Many of our patients remain unwell at the end of standardized treatments. This book encourages and aids the clinician in thinking in a more complex way about their clients' difficulties. I have already incorporated some of the ideas in this book to deepen my clinical work. This book has the potential to assist a clinician's thinking process with their most complex patients. The chapters on formulation, mode work, chair work and enhancing motivation for change are especially clinically rich." - Chris Thornton, Clinical Director of The Redleaf Practice
