Overview

Enduring Change in Eating Disorders provides a unique perspective on the successful treatment of eating disorders, which are among the most debilitating and recalcitrant psychiatric diseases. Unique in the field, this book details effective Structural Family Therapy with qualitative follow-ups of up to 20 years. A practical approach providing concrete tools to the clinician to creating change that holds over time with bulimia, anorexia, and compulsive overeating.

The text draws on cases from the author's practice of over twenty-five years and follows his approach in the theoretical tradition of Intensive Structural Family Therapy (IST). Chapters discuss the nature and significance of eating disorders, a review of current treatment approaches, and the importance of the family in the therapeutic process. Cases of eating disorders in youths and adults are provided as well as instances of bulimia, anorexia, and compulsive overeating.

Three appendices provide the reader with information regarding the scientific basis of the IST model, the effectiveness of the approach in treating conditions other than eating disorders and preventing eating disorders.

    Building theory from the bottom up

    Dr. Fishman offers another wonderful piece of clinical expertise. His interventions are focused on what works, on what is needed to restore functionality, proper techniques for an individual client as a subsystem, on how to engage and recruit external systems to maintain therapeutic gains. In his new book he goes beyond the traditional frontiers of the structural/strategic family therapy models. Dr. Fishman kicked it up another notch in his long career as a psychiatrist, family therapist and gladiator for effective treatment. This is a mandatory reading for those in private practice, hospitals, outpatient clinics, residential treatment facilities, partial hospital programs, school counselors and consumers dealing with eating disorder clients.
