Specializing in both trauma and disordered eating, I purchased
Trauma-Informed Approaches to Eating Disorders as soon as it was
released, and I have not stopped recommending it to other
clinicians. This book offers a comprehensive, evidence-based,
multi-faceted perspective to the etiology, neurobiology, cultural
factors, and treatment of disordered eating. Trauma-informed
clinicians who work with disordered eating at any level will want
this on their shelves for years to come!--Laura Kucharski, MA,
By far the most comprehensive and practical text on treating Eating
Disorders that I have ever seen. Covers many therapy approaches in
useful detail. A must have book for ED therapists.--Graham Taylor,
President "EMDR Association of Australia"
For those of us treating or experiencing eating disorders, the gap
between research and practice has been a deep dark hole, into which
many "cases" have fallen. When trauma - be it relational,
emotional, physical, or sexual - is added to the history, this gap
is deeper and more daunting than most of us are prepared for,
regardless of the breadth of our clinical experience and training,
our dedication, and our desire to help our patients. The fields of
eating disorders and trauma have desperately needed a book like
Trauma-Informed Approaches to Eating Disorders, edited by Andrew
Seubert and Pam Virdi. In this volume of 26 chapters by 40 experts
versed in trauma and eating disorders, they have created a treasure
chest for anyone in the trenches of the combination of these
disorders. After explaining the complexity of eating disorders,
their intersection with trauma and attachment issues, chapters
explain the neurobiology of both conditions, as well as providing
information and a clinical framework for medical and nutritional
personnel to guide their understanding and interventions. The
ensuing chapters provide in depth descriptions of the most recent
cutting-edge treatment approaches to complex eating disorders and
trauma, including the most up to date research associated with
these. The final section examines relapse prevention, approaches to
body image, and the importance of spirituality in the ongoing
recovery process. If I were in charge of the training of eating
disorder and trauma professionals, this exhaustive, thought
provoking volume would be mandated reading.--Margo Maine, PhD,
