Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jennifer J Halvorson, MS, RD (Chicago Center for Clinical Research)
Description: This book describes an interesting, targeted approach to counseling clients with eating disorders by incorporating the Stages of Change theory developed by Prochaska et al. (1994).
Purpose: The purpose is to help clinicians identify the client's stage of change and then match the appropriate intervention to move the client in the behavior change process. The authors provide specific recommendations in each chapter for addressing issues at each stage. In addition, helpful worksheets for both the client and the counselor are available in many of the chapters to serve as tools in facilitating change. The authors meet their overall objectives in this book by providing a structured approach for those working with clients with eating disorders.
Audience: This book is written for mental health professionals who counsel clients with eating disorders. Clinicians who are new to the field, as well as those well versed in the disease, can benefit from the authors' approach using the Stages of Change theory. The authors provide credible information from their years of experience treating clients with eating disorders.
Features: The chapters outline major issues surrounding clients with eating disorders, provide targeted treatment plans with worksheets to help the counseling process, and contain a helpful summary section. In addition, the authors have also published a separate workbook for the client which may complement the counseling process described in this book. The references and the recommended reading list are thorough in providing counselors further direction.
Assessment: This is a very useful reference for mental health professionals who are looking for solid tools that can be used effectively to treat clients with eating disorders. The hands-on worksheets and structured approach stand out to make it a very practical book.

    First of its kind

    This book offers a compassionate approach to treatment that is often overlooked by frustrated professionals and loved ones. I am surprised that it is not a book to be ordered online. I am writing this review to let others know that this book is a well kept secret for those looking to help in recovery or for those looking for recovery.
