The Handbook Of Eating Disorders 2nd Edition PDF
4.96 MB PDF
This is the second edition of this very popular book. The drive behind the first edition was to honour the retirement of Professor Gerald Russell and many of the chapters were written by the diaspora of clinicians and scientists emanating from his academic and clinical leadership. Within the decade since that edition was conceived, developed and executed there have been changes in the balance of clinical and academic connections. A European school has started to emerge. In part EEC funding has facilitated this but, in addition, curiosity into the contrasts and similarities between countries and the willingness and ability to communicate has cemented this approach. Thus this second edition nowrepresents a European perspective. There have been marked advances in knowledge and understanding of the eating disorder over this time. Also the spectrum of what is called ‘eating disorders’ has gradually expanded into obesity as new conditions such as binge eating disorder have been introduced into the diagnostic system. The dialectical process of synthesis between the body of knowledge from the obese and the lean end of the spectrum can enrich our understanding. Many chapters embody this structure. We also used a rather unique method to foster a synthesis and consensus approach. We tried whenever possible to pair authors on the chapters with colleagues in other schools, countries or disciplines.
This has meant that all of the chapters have been rewritten. However, we did not want to lose sight of the original edition, which had provided a coherent, readable and authoritative
overview of this rapidly developing field.
There are inherent paradoxes in such a task. How can you satisfy the quality demands of evidence-based science with the need by clinicians, carers and users for clear, concise, coherent models?We hope that we have been able to fulfil this task. Thus, for the clinician, there is a strong practical emphasis with a problem-based approach, which means that this book has a richness of detail and wisdom that will be valued by all of the professional disciplines involved in caring for people with an eating disorder.
