This informative and unusually practical text brings together original and significant contributions from leading experts from a wide variety of fields. Of major importance to clinicians are the two practical manuals that comprise the final section of this volume. The Eating Disorder Examination (EDE), the major clinical interview for assessing eating disorders, is published here for the first time. It shows precisely how to elicit the key features of these disorders. The final chapter is a cognitive behavioral therapy manual written by three leading experts of this highly effective approach who draw on their own clinical experience in treating patients. This detailed manual covers all those who binge eat, including those who are overweight.
