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 is an important addition to the literature on the treatment of anorexia nervosa. It provides an authoritative and detailed description of the 'Maudsley method, ' the leading family-based treatment for adolescents with anorexia nervosa. The book will be an invaluable resource for clinicians for years to come." --Christopher G. Fairburn, DM, FRCPsych, Professor of Psychiatry, University of Oxford "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, Ruane Professor of Psychiatry, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons; Director, Eating Disorders Research Unit, New York State Psychiatric Institute "During the past decade, progress in the mental health sciences has been reflected in the increasing refinement of empirically based treatment techniques that can be manualized for general application. This book is a fine example of this type of progress, which has been exciting to witness. Lock and his coauthors are to be congratulated for putting together such an excellent and much-needed treatment manual. The authors manage to compress detailed instruction and rich, relevant case material into a powerful volume that delights by its erudition and persuasiveness. Highly recommended for all who are serious about bringing their therapeutic skills to the cutting edge." --Hans Steiner, MD, Professor of Psychiatry, Stanford University School of Medicine
