Synopsis:

With contributions from leading authorities, this timely professional resource critically examines available self-help treatments for weight problems and obesity, binge-eating disorder, bulimia nervosa, and body-image disturbances. Practical pointers are offered for guiding clients or patients toward safe, effective approaches that provide the right level of care, from fully independent strategies to treatments with higher levels of professional involvement. Chapters review the strengths and limitations of commercial diets, exercise programs, workbooks, support groups, Internet resources, adaptations of behavioral models, and more, including strategies for long-term maintenance of weight loss. Special topics include night-eating syndrome, childhood obesity, and coping with weight-related discrimination.

About the Author

Janet D. Latner, PhD, is Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Her research is focused on the diagnosis, maintenance, treatment, and self-help treatment of obesity and eating disturbances, and on improving the long-term maintenance of weight loss through self-help. Dr. Latner has authored over 50 articles, book chapters, and presentations on eating disorders and obesity and has served as an investigator on several nationally funded research projects.

 

G. Terence Wilson, PhD, is the Oscar K. Buros Professor of Psychology at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. He has published numerous scientific articles and has written or edited a number of books, including Binge Eating: Nature, Assessment, and Treatment (with Christopher G. Fairburn). Dr. Wilsons research is focused on the development and evaluation of cognitive-behavioral treatments for eating disorders and obesity, and on the analysis of mechanisms of therapeutic change. He served as a member of the American Psychiatric Associations Eating Disorders Work Group, which developed the diagnostic criteria for eating disorders in the fourth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV), and of the National Institutes of Health Task Force on the Prevention and Treatment of Obesity (1995-2002).
