This book provides the first comprehensive guide to the practice of "enhanced" cognitive behavior therapy (CBT-E), the latest version of the leading empirically supported treatment for eating disorders. Written with the practitioner in mind, the book demonstrates how this transdiagnostic approach can be used with the full range of eating disorders seen in clinical practice. Christopher Fairburn and colleagues describe in detail how to tailor CBT-E to the needs of individual patients, and how to adapt it for adolescents and patients who require hospitalization. Also addressed are frequently encountered co-occurring disorders and how to manage them. Reproducible appendices feature the Eating Disorder Examination interview and questionnaire.Winner--Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies Self-Help Seal of Merit

Cognitive behavioral therapy concentrates on patterns of abnormal thinking and distorted beliefs that are the underlying causes for irrational emotions and thought patterns that can lead to mental illness. Thus, reducing dietary restriction via cognitive and behavioral interventions can reduce binge eating. Essence of therapy: Dietary restraint promotes and maintains binge eating pathology; thus, the treatment is designed to reduce dietary restraint through behavioral strategies (e.g., self-monitoring of behaviors, normalizing patterns of eating). Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is derived from both the cognitive and behavioral schools of psychology and focuses on the alteration of thoughts and actions with the goal of treating various disorders.
