Despite the fact that eating disorders are commonly understood to have a psychological component, there are few effective psychological responses to these conditions. The research literature also indicates that at least a third of cases of obesity result from food misuse, yet psychological treatment is not generally available.

By covering both issues in one volume, Psychological Responses to Eating Disorders and Obesity firmly positions obesity at one end of the food misuse continuum. Bringing together many of the most distinguished researchers and clinicians in the field of disordered eating, this volume presents the latest research on psychological approaches and applies this knowledge to practice. Topics covered include psychological and cultural aspects of food use, using CBT for treating eating disorders and CBT group therapy for obesity.

This innovative collection will be a key resource for clinical and health psychologists, counsellors and nurses and other healthcare professionals dealing with obesity and eating disorders. It will also be of interest to professionals such as school nurses and social workers.
