Overview

Eating disorders are usually regarded as acute illnesses that patients either recover or die from. They are rarely classified as 'severe and enduring' in the same way that other mental disorders, such as schizophrenia, can be.

Yet, many patients suffering from eating disorders struggle with their condition for years. Severe and Enduring Eating Disorder (SEED): Management of Complex Presentations of Anorexia and Bulimia Nervosa introduces SEED as a concept, and draws on detailed case histories to describe its assessment and treatment. The book explores the clinical challenge of long-term eating disorders and examines the physical and psychological problems, family issues and difficulties in day-to-day living that patients with SEED can experience. In addition, the book discusses treatment approaches, including Rehabilitation Eating Disorders Psychiatry, and covers treatment in a range of different settings.
