Overview

Incidence of BED appears to be on the increase. Treating it, and overcoming it, is all the more difficult, especially for those living in a culture that has an intense body image focus.

A Clinician’s Guide to Binge Eating Disorder educates the reader about its triggers and behaviours – and describes steps to treat it and resume a full and productive life. Evidence-based research outcomes provide the framework and foundation for this book.   First-person case studies bring application of this science to life to help close the gap between research and treatment/care, and the importance of clinicians developing a therapeutic relationship as a healing tool with their client is discussed, recognizing that medical and psychological dimensions are inextricably intertwined.

This book allays fear of the unknown, explains the emotional chaos that can sweep in like a storm when, unintentionally, triggers are released. It provides practical steps and footholds for clinicians and researchers to help the patient take control of their life and look to a positive future.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"…nearly 20 years out from the initial recognition in 1994 of BED as a syndrome of interest that merited inclusion in DSM-IV… the chapters in this volume, authored by scientists, clinicians, and advocates, represent the state of the field and... provide a roadmap for the years ahead" - Michael J. Devlin, Stephen A. Wonderlich, B. Timothy Walsh, James E. Mitchell; from the Foreword

"The impressive research, clinical and personal experiences of the authors provide the reader with complementary perspectives on this potentially debilitating eating disorder. The case studies presented through most chapters highlight core clinical issues in a manner that is difficult to do achieve in pure research texts or papers. It has been written with the clinician firmly in mind, who will benefit from using this text irrespective of whether they are a novice therapist eager to learn more about BED, or a highly experienced clinician keeping up-to-date with current understanding and treatment approaches." - Brooke Adam, Journal of Eating Disorders
