"The book edited by these authors in 1985 on the treatment of eating disorders was the standard at that time. This new volume, which has contributions by the leading authorities in each field, is a worthy successor. It is an important new reference and is likely to be the new standard for the field of eating disorders." --Walter H. Kaye, MD, Director, Eating Disorder Program, Department of Psychiatry, University of Pittsburgh
"Written by an internationally renowned group of experts, this state-of-the-art compendium is an essential companion for clinicians working with eating disorders." --David B. Herzog, MD, Massachusetts General Hospital Research
""The Handbook of Treatments for Eating Disorders" is a stunning achievement. The editors have assembled a group of the world's leading authorities to provide us with a volume that simultaneously presents the broadest range of contemporary biological, psychological, and social perspectives for understanding and dealing with these complex disorders, and with the depth and sophistication that each subject deserves. Novices and experienced practitioners alike will find a great deal to value and re-read. In these pages you will find considerable scholarship, wisdom and experience, and a great deal of down-to-earth practical advice and information on assessment and treatment. Several of the chapters are virtual treatment manuals, offering detailed, step-by-step guidance for practitioners.
All mental health professionals will be well served by studying these chapters. Not only will this information provide substantial benefits in helping patients with eating disorders, but readers can expect that the positive carryover of these lessons to almost all other areas of clinical concern will be enormous." --Joel Yager, MD, Professor and Vice Chair for Education, University of New Mexico School of Medicine; Professor Emeritus, UCLA Neuropsychiatric Institute; President-Elect, Academy for Eating Disorders; Editor-i
