"Written by the field's most authoritative experts, this book is a "must read" for all students, practitioners and supervisors engaged in treating adolescent eating disorder patients with Family Based Treatment, and for all others interested in learning what this first-line, evidence-based treatment is about. Clearly written and elaborately detailed, the volume contains step-by-step instructions for undertaking this treatment approach, practical discussions of the common problems likely to be encountered and tactics for their management, and useful appendix material to help chart and assess progress." -Joel Yager, MD, professor of psychiatry, University of Colorado School of Medicine, and past president of the Academy for Eating Disorders

"This is an extraordinarily helpful book aimed at enhancing the supervision of clinicians using Family Based Treatment for disorders such as anorexia and bulimia nervosa. As such, it is a rare practical treatise on supervision, with many concrete case examples, and although focused on Family Based Treatment, it would be useful to many beginning (or experienced) supervisors in other domains. Moreover, many of the chapters present an advanced view that is likely to be useful to those wanting to improve their practice of Family Based Treatment." -W. Stewart Agras, MD, professor emeritus of psychiatry, Stanford University School of Medicine
