Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for Adolescents with Eating Disorders.

Author(s): Riccardo Dalle Grave and Simona Calugi.

Year: 2020.

Edition: First (1st).

Publisher: Guildford Press.

Type(s): Hardcover and Kindle.

Synopsis:

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).

Year: 2007.

Synopsis:

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.
