This practical manual offers a step-by-step guide to the treatment of anorexia nervosa in adolescents. Unique in its focus on mobilizing parents and siblings as a resource in treatment, the approach is ideal for short-term treatment and has demonstrated effectiveness in controlled clinical trials. Intervention is divided into three clearly defined phases. Using such innovative methods as a family meal, the clinician first learns strategies for helping families gain immediate control over the adolescent's eating behaviors. Once the patient accepts parental demands to eat, related family problems are addressed in the second phase. The third and final phase of treatment aims toward getting adolescent development back on track and establishing family relationships that do not revolve around the eating disorder. Featuring detailed guidelines for conducting each family session, the manual is illustrated with extensive clinical transcripts and vignettes.

'This book - the first specific manualized approach available - is highly recommended for all professionals engaged in work with adolescents suffering from anorexia nervosa.' - Journal of Clinical Psychiatry 'This work was designed to be most valuable to psychotherapists, and it succeeds well in this mission.' - Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics 'This book is an important addition to the literature on the treatment of anorexia nervosa. It provides an authoritative and detailed description of the 'Maudsley approach,' the leading family-based treatment for adolescents with anorexia nervosa. The book will be an invaluable resource for clinicians for years to come.' - Christopher Fairburn, MD, University of Oxford, UK 'Family-based treatment is one of the few demonstrably effective interventions for anorexia nervosa. This treatment manual clearly explains the development of this approach and, even more important, provides a detailed description of how it can be implemented. Lock and his colleagues have provided practitioners with a most useful tool to assist their patients. This book will be required reading for all who treat youngsters with anorexia nervosa.' - B. Timothy Walsh, MD, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and New York State Psychiatric Institute, USA
