Overview

In this timely and brilliant account of an area of self-destructive behavior that is rapidly growing in significance, the distinguished clinician Gianna Williams draws on the work of Melanie Klein and Wilfred Bion and case studies of many of her patients to discuss the

psychodynamics and treatment of eating disorders.

Williams covers eating disorders in both men and women from infancy through adulthood, framing the discussion in terms of Bion's model of the relationship between container and contained, and Klein's model of projective and

introjective processes. These studies rigorously and broadly apply today's most highly contested and influential concepts to the clinical setting.
