Book: Enduring Change in Eating Disorders
Dr Fishman is the author of “Enduring Change in Eating Disorders – Interventions with long -term results” (Brunner-Routledge 2004). The book draws on specific cases from his thirty years of practice to show the successful treatment of eating disorders using the model of Intensive Structural Therapy.
Individuals with eating disorders in their own words describe their experiences. Readers gain an insight into the treatment sessions involving families. You are lead through the interventions which are needed for each case, as a means to improve the individual’s dynamics with their family and ultimately help them overcome the eating disorder.
Dr Fishman examines the nature of eating disorders – whether they can be effectively treated. The book provides a broad cross section of case studies of individuals with eating disorders, from children through to adults who have battled with the disease for years. The proven effectiveness of the treatment is shown with follow up consultations with individuals, some twenty years after treatment.
This book provides practical information to practitioners as well as individuals with eating disorders and their families.
