This manual provides an authoritative and detailed description of the Maudsley approach, the leading family-based treatment for adolescents with anorexia nervosa. Unique in its focus on mobilizing parents and siblings as a resource in treatment, the approach is ideal for short-term treatment and has demonstrated effectiveness in controlled clinical trials. Featuring session-by-sesion intervention guidelines and in-depth case illustrations, this book will enhance the clinical armamentaria of child and adolescent psychiatrists, psychologists, family therapists, and others working with patients with eating disorders.
