9780123756688: Treatment of Eating Disorders: Bridging the Research-practice Gap

Eating disorders (EDs) affect at least 11 million people in the United States each year and spread across age, race, ethnicity and socio-economic class. While professional literature on the subject has grown a great deal in the past 30 years, it tends to be exclusively research-based and lacking expert clinical commentary on treatment. This volume focuses on just such commentary, with chapters authored by both expert clinicians and researchers. Core issues such as assessment and diagnosis, the correlation between EDs and weight and nutrition, and medical/psychiatric management are discussed, as are the underrepresented issues of treatment differences based on gender and culture, the applications of neuroscience, EDNOS, comorbid psychiatric disorders and the impact of psychiatric medications. This volume uniquely bridges the gap between theoretical findings and actual practice, borrowing a bench-to-bedside approach from medical research.

  • Includes real-world clinical findings that will improve the level of care readers can provide, consolidated in one place
  • Underrepresented issues such as gender, culture, EDNOS and comorbidity are covered in full
  • Represents outstanding scholarship, with each chapter written by an expert in the topic area

Review:

"Treatment of Eating Disorders, edited by luminaries Margo Maine, Beth Hartman McGilley, and Douglas Bunnell, takes on the ambitious challenge of bridging the research-practice gap in the field of eating disorders. From its conceptualization, the book had the potential to be fragmented and either too broad or too esoteric; instead it offers a complex, multidimensional, and far-reaching scope of the problems we encounter as professionals committed to the daily grind of advancing the understanding and treatment of an array of eating-related problems. This book also had the potential to be dry and pragmatic, but instead its chapters are filled with compassionate wisdom, honesy, and a real commitment to social change.... Treatment of Eating Disorders fulfills its goals of bridging practice and science and left us both sated for now, and eager to learn more from any one 85 of the astute contributors to this volume." --Eating Disorders, January 2011

"Treatment of Eating Disorders: Bridging the Research-Practice Gap" serves as an excellent resource for learning more from our colleagues 'across the aisle' and as part of the shared mission of improving treatments for eating disorders." --Academy of Eating Disorders Newsletter, December 2010
