"Every clinician working with the eating disorders will know a bulimia nervosa sufferer like Jessica, Angela or Bethany. This book gives practical advice about how to work with such patients, incorporating existing methods and building on them with new methods from the authors' clinical research and experience. It should be in the collection of every psychological therapist working with bulimia nervosa.' - "Glenn Waller, Visiting Professor of Psychology, Institute of Psychiatry, King's College London, & Consultant Clinical Psychologist, Vincent Square Eating Disorders Service, CNWL NHS Foundation Trust. "'Underpinned by a strong and evidence-based model, this therapist guide is brimming with solid practical advice and detailed guidance on how to implement particular therapeutic strategies and deal with hurdles and challenges along the way. Accompanying worksheets and therapeutic aide-memoirs are excellent. Both new and expert therapists will find this book highly useful.' -" Ulrike Schmidt, Professor of Eating Disorders, Institute of Psychiatry, South London and Maudsley NHS Trust. 'Treating Bulimia Nervosa and Binge Eating "is an excellent, practical handbook for clinicians in helping their patients overcome bulimia nervosa. The authors - Myra Cooper, Gillian Todd, and Adrian Wells - provide an innovative, powerful new approach - metacognitive therapy that can help patients disentangle themselves from their problematic thoughts and urges. This book is filled with clinical vignettes, behavioral experiments, metacognitive exercises, treatment tips, self report forms and informative schematics that will be immensely valuable in the real-world setting that clinicians encounter. This is an important contribution to helping us overcome a difficult clinical problem. The authors should be congratulated for providing us with a break-through in how to conceptualize and treat this problem.' - "Robert L. Leahy, Ph.D., "Director, "American Institute for Cognitive" Therapy
