Overview

"In this comprehensive book, Dr. Kathryn Zerbe provides guidance to clinicians by skillfully modeling an approach…informed by clinical practice and the empirical literature….Zerbe is recognized as a leader in the field of eating disorders."—Kamryn T. Eddy, PhD, Department of Psychiatry Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School
Kathryn Zerbe, after 25 years of in-the-trenches clinical work and award-winning instruction of psychotherapeutic principles, unravels the research behind eating disorders and presents hard and fast answers that practitioners can put to work with their clients. Zerbe’s approach is an integrated one, and one that emphasizes an amalgamation of interventions tailored to the needs of the patient.
Filled with clinical case examples from her own years in practice, sample dialogues, and easy-to-read tables and charts summarizing important clinical tips, Integrated Treatment of Eating Disorders is an invaluable resource for all mental health practitioners. It is the first book of its kind to tackle the complex issue of eating disorders in a way that is hands-on, practical, and applicable, offering clinicians real answers to essential questions so that they may more effectively and compassionately treat their clients.
