Overview

Psychobiology and Treatment of Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa / Edition 1

During the past 15 years, research on anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa has grown drastically, providing empirical evidence for a more accurate classification schema of eating disorders. This book brings together the most recent clinical research concerning all facets of these distinct but interrelated disorders, providing a current overview of the psychobiology and treatment of anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa.

Written by experts in the field, Psychobiology and Treatment of Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa reviews a diagnostic schema of eating disorders from the perspectives of cross-cultural, longitudinal, and family studies. It presents the psychobiology of anorexia and bulimia nervosa in the context of neuroendocrinology and the psychological perceptions associated with eating behavior. The book also examines the family's contribution to the development and maintenance of eating disorders from the perspective of family interaction studies. The final section of this book reviews the latest developments in the integration of psychodynamic concepts into the psychotherapy of anorexia and bulimia nervosa, covers cognitive behavioral approaches, and examines the pharmacological treatment of eating disorders.
