This important and well researched volume examines the clinical phenomenon of eating disorders, exploring their longitudinal risk trajectory and introducing the Mindful Emotion Regulation - Approach (MER-A) as a starting point for intervention.

The book reviews various eating problems that can originate from the earliest perinatal phase to early adolescence, and through the MER-A framework, focuses on how the principles of mindfulness and the related theoretical and clinical bases underlying the construct of emotional regulation can guide the clinician to a deeper understanding of a patient’s disordered eating. Featuring reflections on clinical cases, it includes coverage of patients’ difficulties in regulating emotions, their relationships with various eating behaviours, and their associated interpersonal features.

Mindfulness and Eating Disorders represents an attempt to provide a complete appreciation of this complex and multifaceted topic, making it of great importance to psychotherapists and related mental health professionals working with eating disorders.
