"The efficacy of this form of treatment has now been established--it has become the first-choice intervention for adolescents with AN. Containing clear guidance and numerous examples, this book is required reading for all clinicians who treat young people with this disorder."--B. Timothy Walsh, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Columbia University; Director, Division of Clinical Therapeutics, New York State Psychiatric Institute
"Now in an updated second edition, this is arguably the most important book on the treatment of younger patients with AN to be published in the last 20 years. Clinicians who work with this patient population and their family members need to read--and use--this manual."--James E. Mitchell, MD, The Lee A. Christoferson Chair in Neuroscience Research and Chester Fritz Distinguished University Professor, University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences
"An important milestone in the development of effective treatments for adolescent AN. The publication of the second edition is timely, reflecting the growing evidence base and the widespread acceptance that active involvement of families in treatment is a key ingredient in recovery. The authors' ability to combine sound empirical knowledge and clinical wisdom makes this book a 'must' for practitioners."--Ivan Eisler, PhD, Department of Psychological Medicine, Institute of Psychiatry, King's College London, United Kingdom
"This manual has been an invaluable tool for our clinical practice. Lock and Le Grange have produced the authoritative guide to FBT for AN. Their evidence-based approach has made conversations with parents about how to address this debilitating illness much more collaborative and hopeful."--Leslie A. Sim, PhD, Clinical Director, Mayo Clinic Eating Disorders Program
"In writing and updating their treatment manual, Lock and Le Grange demonstrate an exemplary respect for the bidirectional relationship between research and practice. The second edition incorporates more than a decade's worth of additional clinical trials and clinical experience, yielding a rich description of a powerful intervention for a notoriously difficult-to-treat disorder. This manual is an essential resource for therapists and a cornerstone text for a graduate-level course or practicum in eating disorders interventions."--Katharine L. Loeb, PhD, School of Psychology, Fairleigh Dickinson University; Department of Psychiatry, Mount Sinai School of Medicine
