Community Treatment of Eating Disorders describes how to put together a team that will deliver community–based treatment to a range of people with eating disorders. Rooted in clinical experience, it is based on a model service established in London and provides professionals with a detailed guide to the provision of care from the initial stages of the eating disorder through to long–term Severe and Enduring Eating Disorder (SEED) reached by a proportion of sufferers.

This innovative guide provides a new approach for efficient outpatient assessment, a comprehensive approach to effective physical monitoring, a new method of assessing muscle power (the SUSS test) and a full description of day hospital treatment for eating disorders. Individual, group and family therapy are described and useful case histories are used throughout. All aspects of setting up and running a service are covered, including:

  • funding, management and ensuring safety
  • training and supporting staff
  • improving team morale
  • establishing liaison and outreach
  • using inpatient care and supporting patients in hospital
  • engaging in training, teaching and research.

Flexible in its approach, Community Treatment of Eating Disorders enables professionals to replicate the methods in their own contexts. It is a vital tool for all health care professionals working with eating disorders, and for those involved in the funding, planning and implementation of services.
