Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This posthumous collection of case material illustrates the treatment modality successfully employed by psychiatrist Bruch with patients suffering from the eating disorder of anorexia. Two of her associates at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston have edited this final work, taped by the author before her death in 1984. Bruch makes the reader privy to the therapeutic transaction between her patients who are in what she describes as "the relentless pursuit of thinness." Emphasizing the conversational ambiance of the therapy and discounting heretofore unsuccessful approaches of psychoanalysis and behavior modification, she helped her patients to heal. The dramatic dialogues in the cases presented allow us to hear these desperate young anorexic women individually explore their thwarted development, under the direction of a compassionate physician who guides them towards wellness.

From Library Journal

Psychiatrist Bruch was a pioneer in developing psychotherapy for anorexia victims. Author of half a dozen books, her first work, Eating Disorders , appeared 15 years ago ( LJ 10/15/73). She taped her interactions with clients, and these form the nucleus of this final book. Bruch's strength is her straightforward writing: it is honest, simple, and effective. However, this collection of case studies does not offer advice, nor much analysis; although it is accessible to any reader, it will be primarily useful to professionals. Since Bruch died in 1984, the book is not informed by the latest research, and should be read by laypersons only in conjunction with other titles. Beverly Miller, Boise State Univ. Lib., Id.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A must read for beginners or experienced clinicians. A variety of common and unique cases presented but it is the manner that Hilde approaches the patient and family members that many clinicians could learn from. It resonnates Karen Horney's tenets and Ira Sacker's clinical perspectives. Worth your time and money.
