Not yet rated | write a review
An indispensable clinical resource, this groundbreaking book is the first treatment manual to focus specifically on adolescent bulimia nervosa. The authors draw on their proven approach to treating anorexia nervosa in the family context and adapt it to the unique needs of this related yet distinct clinical population. Evidence-based strategies are presented for helping the whole family collaborate to bring dysfunctional eating behaviors under control, while also addressing co-occurring psychological problems and parent-child relationship conflicts. Highly practical, the book shows exactly how to carry out this time-limited therapy and what to do when problems arise. Special features include annotated session transcripts and answers to frequently asked questions.

Editorial Reviews

"Le Grange and Lock, the brilliant innovators of the only effective treatment for anorexia nervosa, have adapted their family-based approach into the first promising intervention for adolescents with bulimia nervosa. Extremely well written and user friendly."--David B. Herzog, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School "When treating adolescents with bulimia nervosa, clinicians owe it to their patients to consider how family involvement might benefit treatment. This welcome book is authored by two of our most esteemed authorities on family-based intervention for eating disorders. Grounded in extensive research and practice, the manual offers theoretical perspectives, a clear rationale for the treatment, and practical instruction on implementing the techniques. The evidence-based approach and excellent clinical illustrations provided by le Grange and Lock will enrich the therapeutic armamentarium of novices and experienced clinicians alike."--Joel Yager, MD, Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences, University of New Mexico School of Medicine; past president, Academy for Eating Disorders
