Overview

One of the more complex and challenging groups to engage in the clinical process are patients with eating-related difficulties. Recent NICE guidelines recommend a focus on psychological approaches and therapies as treatment for this difficult to engage patient group. Eating and its Disorders presents an overview of our most current knowledge relating to the assessment, treatment, and future research directions of the study of eating-related disorders. A host of national and international experts working in the field share their insights, as well as some of the potential dilemmas in working with these client groups.

Clinicians and health-care professionals will gain important insights into the latest evidence-based approaches to assessment and formulation of eating and its disorders, as well as evidence-based psychological models that attempt to account for the complexities of real clinical practice. Also addressed are the challenges of working with individuals that have enduring eating problems, neuropsychological treatments of eating disorders, co-morbid problems such as self-harming, and personality based difficulties. With its cutting edge insights into the newest models and theories in the field, Eating and its Disorders is an invaluable guide to the processes, interventions, challenges, and organizational approaches to eating-related problems and difficulties.
