This indispensable manual presents the leading empirically supported treatment approach for adolescents with anorexia nervosa (AN). What sets family-based treatment apart is the central role played by parents and siblings throughout therapy. The book gives practitioners a clear framework for mobilizing parents to promote their child's weight restoration and healthy eating; improving parent/n-/child relationships; and getting adolescent development back on track. Each phase of therapy is described in session-by-session detail. In-depth case illustrations show how to engage clients while flexibly implementing the validated treatment procedures.

This new edition:

*Reflects the latest knowledge on AN and its treatment, including additional research supporting the approach.

*Clarifies key concepts and techniques.

*Includes a chapter on emerging directions in training and treatment dissemination.

*Introduces many new clinical strategies.
