Treatment Manual for Anorexia Nervosa: A Family-Based Approach


Product Description

Published USA, 2013 (2nd edition)
The basic premise of this form of family therapy is that the parents should be seen as a most useful resource in the treatment of adolescents with anorexia nervosa. This manual sets forth the work of Christopher Dare and the Maudsley Hospital in London which was the cradle for the specific brand of family therapy devised by Dare. Central to the therapy is the exoneration of the parents from blame for the illness yet rasing the parents` level of anxiety so as to engage them fully in treatment. The design of this manual is systematic and conforms to the (three) phases of therapy. It is illustrated with extensive clinical transcripts and vignettes.

James Lock is Assistant Professor of Child Psychiatry in the Department of Psychiatry at Stanford University School of Medicine, USA.
