"This text blends state-of-the-art knowledge of the theoretical mechanisms and practical applications of exposure therapy in general with impressive clinical experience and expertise in the treatment of specific eating disordersa Particularly important is how the book identifies and then addresses major obstacles to the use of exposure in the treatment of eating disorders, including the personal concerns of clinicians themselves. Another key feature is the thoughtful manner in which the authors detail how to explain exposure treatment and successfully engage patients in its implementationa Therapists will find the detailed treatment guidelines and guidance on how to respond to individual patient needs invaluable. It makes a compelling case for the expanded use of exposure therapy and is strongly recommended reading for clinicians treating eating disorders." -- G. Terence Wilson, PhD, Oscar K Buros Professor, Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology, Rutgers University "A comprehensive understanding of exposure-based principles and techniques is essential for all clinicians working in the treatment of eating disorders. This book is a masterpiece in which three brilliant minds - Drs. Becker, Farrell and Waller, carefully outline the why and the how of exposure therapy for eating disorders. Essential reading!" -- Dr. Stuart B. Murray, DClinPsych, PhD, Associate Professor, Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Francisco "This book expertly and informatively explains the why and how of exposure for eating disorders and its essential role across different treatment modalities. A must-read for all those therapists who anxiously wonder "what if my client falls apart if I get them to face what they avoid" -- Tracey Wade, Matthew Flinders Distinguished Professor, Flinders University
