Sara Gilbert

This is a practical guide to working with clients using techniques drawn from cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Drawing on many years' experience as a practitioner, Sara Gilbert explains how to structure assessment and programmes of treatment for eating disorders, setting out clearly the theoretical basis and evidence underpinning the use of CBT. Features of this fully revised Second Edition include:

  • current definitions relating to abnormal patterns of eating
  • up-to-date information on potential causes
  • boundary issues and making referrals, and
  • new developments in theory and technique, such as the use of motivational interviewing, mindfulness-based therapy and the Internet.
  • `Self-help resources' are also included which can be photocopied as handouts for clients.

Written for practitioners working in a range of professional and voluntary settings, and for those training to work with patients and clients.
