Eating Disorders : Cognitive Behaviour Therapy with Children and Young People Paperback / softback

Part of the CBT with Children, Adolescents and Families series


Eating disorders comprise a range of physical, psychological and behavioural features that often have an impact on social functioning and can invade most areas of the sufferer's life.

Although eating and weight disorders are common in children and adolescents, there is a scarcity of practical guidance on treatment methods for eating disorders in young people. In this book, Simon Gowers and Lynne Green bring together up-to-date research, clinical examples and useful tips to guide practitioners in working with young people, as well as helping families of children and adolescents to deal with their difficulties.

Eating Disorders provides the clinician with an introduction about how CBT can be used to challenge beliefs about control, restraint, weight and shape, allowing young people to manage their eating disorder.

Chapters cover:preparing for therapya CBT treatment programmeapplications and challenges. This practical text will be essential reading for mental health professionals, paediatric teams and those in primary care working with children and adolescents with eating disorders.

It will benefit those working with both sufferers themselves and families who have difficulty understanding the disorder.
