'Bulimia nervosa is a very distressing and common disorder for which effective treatment is quite limited. Fortunately, this new volume by clinical experts at the cutting-edge of the new treatment for this disorder provides a solution. This volume presents a detailed program by which individuals with bulimia nervosa can help themselves. It is highly readable and enriched with a number of relevant clinical examples. I highly recommend this volume.'

– Aaron T Beck, M.D. University Professor of Psychiatry, University of Pennsylvania

Written for those who either suffer from or come into contact with bulimia nervosa, this manual will be an invaluable source of support for all those who wish to understand and to change their behaviour. Written in a clear and accessible style, it provides a framework for understanding what maintains the disorder and why it has developed. It is a detailed, step-by-step programme to aid recovery.

The authors draw on recent developments in cognitive theory and on innovative and up-to-date cognitive therapy treatment strategies. They focus on the link between thinking and behaviour, and give guidance on learning how to identify and change negative thoughts, underlying assumptions and core beliefs. Factual information is presented alongside a complete programme of work sheets, self-assessment questionnaires and case examples from the authors' extensive professional experience.
