This book describes the application of cognitive behavioural principles to patients with a wide range of eating disorders – it covers those with straightforward problems and those with more complex conditions or co-morbid states.

The book takes a highly pragmatic view. It is based on the published evidence, but stresses the importance of individualised, principle-based clinical work.

It describes the techniques within the widest clinical context, for use across the age range and from referral to discharge.

Throughout the text, the links between theory and practice are highlighted in order to stress the importance of the flexible application of skills to each new situation. Case studies and sample dialogs are employed to demonstrate the principles in action and the book concludes with a set of useful handouts for patients and other tools.

This book will be essential reading for all those working with eating-disordered patients including psychologists, psychiatrists, nurses, counsellors, dieticians, and occupational therapists.
