Overview

Clinical Manual of Eating Disorders provides sound therapeutic advice based on current research and clinical practice. It includes detailed discussions of various aspects of assessment and treatment, featuring up-to-date evidence- and consensus-based information. Ranging from the determination of initial treatment approaches to problems posed by unique groups of patients, it marks the first APPI volume specifically directed toward the clinical management of patients with eating disorders -- and the first book to focus squarely on what psychiatrists need to know about the clinical assessment and management of patients with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorders, and obesity.

In these pages, preeminent psychiatric authorities on eating disorders offer practical advice, research results, and the fruits of clinical experience. In addition to thorough extended discussion and coverage of all assessment and treatment topics encompassed by the third edition of the American Psychiatric Association's "Practice Guideline for the Treatment of Patients with Eating Disorders," the book includes topics such as: night eating and related syndromes, obesity and weight management in relation to psychiatric medications, psychiatric aspects of bariatric surgery, and management of patients with chronic, intractable eating disorders. Clinical vignettes discuss specific techniques and strategies to help anchor the discussions in the decision-making situations faced by practitioners every day. Among the book's features: • coverage of a wide range of diagnoses, from new onset to very chronic conditions• consideration of comorbid psychiatric, substance abuse, and medical conditions• applications to outpatient, ambulatory, and inpatient settings• a range of treatment strategies, including biological, cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, and family treatments• discussion of special concerns involving college athletes and patients from different ethnic or cultural backgrounds• inclusion of APA Practice Guideline tables as well as the most recent version of the Eating Disorders Questionnaire

The insights garnered from this book will enable clinicians to: • better make nuanced assessments of patients with eating disorders• present the best available evidence about treatment options to patients and their families• initiate and conduct treatment interventions with the majority of patients they encounter

Clinical Manual of Eating Disorders is an invaluable tool for psychiatrists that complements other resources for all professionals who see patients with these challenging conditions, whether mental health clinicians, primary care physicians, dieticians, psychologists, or social workers.

Editorial Reviews

PsycCRITIQUES

The purpose of Clinical Manual of Eating Disorders is to provide a resource "to help clinicians better understand how to care for patients and families seeking help" (p.xix). This goal is masterfully achieved and exceeded at times. Well-organized and thorough discussions extend past the guidelines for the general management of anorexia nervosa and bulimia. This book is a shining contribution to the professional literature.

Doddy Enterprise

Give the severity of these conditions, and clinicians' relative discomfort with treating and managing these challenging patients, this book provides valuable knowledge and insight in a well written and readable format.

The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease

This collection of 16 chapters by 26 authors explores the far reaches of what was once a narrowly defined diagnostic category. All in all, this volume offers the student and clinician and comprehensive overview of the field.

From The Critics
Reviewer: Steven T. Herron, MD (University of Arizona Health Sciences Center)
Description: Published in an attempt to provide more detail to the previously released American Psychiatric Association Practice Guidelines for the Treatment of Psychiatric Disorders: Compendium 2006, this book addresses the diagnosis, assessment, and treatment of various types of eating disorders, including binge-eating disorder.
Purpose: In an effort to elaborate upon the previously published guidelines, the book clarifies and further explains the many nuances associated with the identification and treatment of these challenging disorders.
Audience: Though primarily penned for clinicians (psychiatrists, psychologists, nurse practitioners, therapists, social workers, etc.) who are confronted with patients suffering from these disorders, the book should also be a welcome edition for trainees (residents and medical students), families, patients, and those trying to understand eating disorders and their devastating effects on patients and their families.
Features: While the first few chapters introduce more general concepts regarding these cases, the heart of the book revolves around specific aspects of treatment in various patient populations (athletes, cultural considerations, comorbid medical conditions). There are numerous diagrams, tables, and charts, the references are appropriate and recent, and the chapter explaining various aspects of bariatric surgery is very practical and informative.
Assessment: Given the severity of these conditions, and clinicians' relative discomfort with treating and managing these challenging patients, this book provides valuable knowledge and insight in a well written and readable format. The authors are well versed in their particular topics, and make their information interesting and thought provoking. Of note, the chapters on cultural considerations and comorbid medical conditions are particularly enlightening, as is the chapter on athletes and eating disorders. This is a worthy and useful addition to the field that will benefit its readers tremendously.
