This book provides the first comprehensive guide to the practice of "enhanced" cognitive behavior therapy (CBT-E), the leading empirically supported treatment for eating disorders. Written with the practitioner in mind, the book demonstrates how this transdiagnostic approach can be used with the full range of eating disorders seen in clinical practice. Christopher Fairburn and colleagues describe in detail how to tailor CBT-E to the needs of individual patients, and how to adapt it for adolescents and patients who require hospitalization. Also addressed are frequently encountered co-occurring disorders and how to manage them. Reproducible appendices feature the latest versions of the Eating Disorder Examination interview and questionnaire.

"With his evidence-based, 'enhanced' treatment, Fairburn takes CBT to a new level. This book is written explicitly for clinicians, who will find the clearly written, practical guidance invaluable. Of particular interest will be the authoritative description of the psychopathology of eating disorders and the lucid analysis of the management and treatment of underweight patients and those with multiple comorbidities. This is the definitive clinical account of CBT for eating disorders."—G. Terence Wilson, PhD, Oscar K. Buros Professor of Psychology, Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey

"From the most prominent group in the world studying the nature and treatment of eating disorders comes this cutting-edge treatment guide, which spans all eating disorder diagnoses as well as conditions that fall outside current diagnostic criteria. Based on a solid empirical foundation, the transdiagnostic enhanced CBT approach will immediately become the gold standard for the treatment of eating disorders."
—David H. Barlow, PhD, ABPP, Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry, Boston University, and Founder and Director Emeritus, Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders

"Over the past 30 years, Fairburn has made immense contributions to our understanding and treatment of patients with eating disorders. This timely, clearly written, immensely informative, and very user-friendly book provides just what the clinician needs—a practical guide to all phases of treatment."—Robert L. Leahy, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, Weill Cornell Medical College, New York Presbyterian Hospital

"Another milestone by the field’s foremost pioneer, this book explains how to treat eating disorders in exquisite detail, and does so with a rich theoretical and empirical foundation as its basis. This will be the authoritative volume for many years to come."—Kelly D. Brownell, PhD, Professor and Chair of Psychology, and Director, Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity, Yale University
