ACCEPTANCE AND COMMITMENT THERAPY FOR EATING DISORDERS
A Process-Focused Guide to Treating Anorexia and Bulimia By Kelly G. Wilson, Ph.D., Emily K. Sandoz, MS and Troy DuFrene
This is the first professional acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) guide to treating eating disorders. Many people are preoccupied with thoughts about their bodies and concerns about
what they eat, but eating disorder sufferers' lives are completely dominated by these anxieties. Research suggests that rigidity and perfectionism are actually at the core of most eating disorders and can be effectively addressed by teaching mindful acceptance and the importance of committed action.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for Eating Disorders presents, for the first time, a step-by-step acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) guide for clinicians who work with clients with anorexia and
bulimia. The book helps clinicians assess and treat eating disorders, which are among the deadliest and most difficult-to-treat psychological disorders, and discusses specific problems therapists
may encounter when treating eating disorder sufferers. The content does not assume any prior familiarity with eating disorders, mindfulness and acceptance-based therapies, or cognitive
behavioural treatments in general.
Co-authored by Kelly Wilson, co-founder of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), this complete professional guide targets the underlying factors that fuel most eating disorders.
