This book is the first to address what really happens behind closed doors during eating disorders treatment, as most writing has only addressed theoretical approaches and behavioral strategies. The field has long needed a book that describes the heart of the matter: the therapeutic interventions and interactions that comprise life-changing treatment for this life-threatening disorder. In response to this need, the authors have created a book that reflects the individual therapeutic skills and the collective wisdom of senior clinicians, all of whom have years of experience treating anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder. Intended to be a deeply thoughtful and instructive volume, Effective Clinical Practice in the Treatment of Eating Disorders: The Heart of the Matter demonstrates the depth, complexity, and impact of the therapeutic process. In particular, the book articulates and explores essential points of information, issues, insights and unresolved questions about eating disorders treatment. Effective Clinical Practice in the Treatment of Eating Disorders describes and explicates important treatment issues and themes in a nuanced, highly contextualized and qualitative manner. The book offers a significant reference for both novice and seasoned therapists, and it includes specific information that will serve to inform and mentor future generations of eating disorders clinicians.

Reviews:

"It is a goldmine of clinical pearls, offering a bird’s eye view into treatment philosophy and implementation from a feminist perspective…this volume contains an in-depth look at the ‘heart of the matter,’ elucidating the underlying emotional, interpersonal and spiritual conditions associated with the disease – matters which at some level transcend the race, gender, and socio-economic status of sufferers. The book is unique in the way in which philosophical matters are interwoven with an abundance of the practical…well-written, easy-to-read, and aesthetically pleasing on the bookshelf. I recommend this book to any clinicians treating women with eating disorders…the years of clinical experience and wisdom contained in the volume add an invaluable resource to the treatment and recovery literature." – Kimberly Dennis, M.D., Eating Disorders

"The author list…represents a body of seasoned practitioners who collectively represent centuries of clinical experience with eating disorders. The depth and breadth of experience coupled with eloquent writing and clinical vignettes results in a rich volume that elevates us beyond the day to day struggles of deal with insurance companies and hospital administration and reminds us of some truly fundamental principles of conducting psychotherapy with individuals with eating disorders. This book speaks in one voice and never veers toward the choppy. Any clinician involved in the treatment of eating disorders would benefit from a deep and careful read of this book. This volume could meaningfully be used in any educational setting in which providers are being trained to conduct therapy with individuals with eating disorders. Regardless of therapeutic orientation, the clinical wisdom in this book will assist with developing a healthy and respectful stance towards patients with eating disorders." -Cynthia M. Bulik in Sex Roles
