"This book is as original as it is important. It breaks new ground and is absolutely must reading' for professionals working with eating disorders or obesity. This book will lead the field into a new generation of both treatment and research." --Kelly D. Brownell, PhD, Yale University"A mandatory resource for anyone studying or treating binge eating....One wishes that books of this type were available for all disorders." --John P. Foreyt, PhD, Baylor College of MedicineReseña del editor:
Filling a gap in the literature, this volume synthesizes what is known about binge eating and its treatment. Representing a collaboration of experts from various fields, the book describes the history of binge eating and examines the controversies surrounding its definition and classification. Chapters consider binge eating from the perspectives of bulimia nervosa, anorexia nervosa, obesity, and addictive disorders. Methods for assessment are examined, and the efficacy of drug treatment, short-term psychological treatment, and psychodynamic psychotherapy are evaluated. This volume is one of the first to propose "binge eating disorder" as a category in DSM-IV. Two practical manuals show how to conduct a standardized interview for assessing eating disorders and how to provide cognitive-behavioral treatment to those who binge eat. This book will be of interest to psychologists, psychiatrists, dieticians, and others concerned with eating disorders and their treatment.
