Effective Eating Disorders Treatment offers a comprehensive theoretical background designed to facilitate understanding of how eating disorders develop, guidance on establishing therapeutic alliances, and also identifies key interventions that have been proven to be effective. Readers will also find empirically supported treatment approaches that go beyond traditional research by exploring influential dynamics of the clinical relationship such as perceptions of control, self-blame, choice, and treatment success. This engaging new volume also includes former patient reflections, which are intended to provide a more complete view of current eating disorder treatments and research.
