Type(s): Hardcover and Kindle.
This state-of-the-art guide provides a powerful transdiagnostic approach for treating adolescent eating disorders (anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge-eating disorder, and others) in either outpatient or inpatient settings.
It describes how enhanced cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT-E) – the gold-standard treatment for adult eating disorders – has been systematically adapted and tested with younger patients.
With a strong motivational focus, CBT-E gives the adolescent a key role in decision making. The book presents session-by-session guidelines for assessing patients, determining whether CBT-E is appropriate, developing case conceptualisations, conducting individualised interventions, addressing medical issues, and involving parents.
User-friendly features include case vignettes and reproducible forms; purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials in a convenient 8 1/2″ x 11″ size.
CBT-E is recognised as a best practice for the treatment of adolescent eating disorders by the UK’s National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).
