For Treating Anorexia Nervosa – The Maudsley Model for adults with anorexia
A Cognitive Interpersonal Therapy Workbook for Treating Anorexia Nervosa provides adults with anorexia nervosa and the professionals working alongside them with a practical resource to work through together.
The approach described is recommended by the National Institute of Clinical and Care Excellence (NICE) as a first-line, evidence-based treatment for adults with anorexia nervosa.
The manual is divided into accessible modules, providing a co-ordinated, step-by-step guide to recovery. Modules include:
- Developing treatment goals
- Exploring thinking styles
- Developing an identity beyond anorexia
This is a highly beneficial aid to recovery for those with the condition, their families and mental health professionals.
The treatment approach and workbook emerged from listening carefully to patients and carers in order to understand their perspective and their needs for a successful treatment.
The book carefully walks you down a path of recovery, richly augmenting text with exercises and illustrations to engage you in the process of achieving wellness. By including true stories from people who have recovered, the authors invite you to enter the recovery space of those who have successfully overcome the burden of anorexia nervosa.
They will help you transform your vicious flower of illness into a virtuous flower of recovery and help you to write your own story of who you can and will be once you leave anorexia nervosa behind. You will experience their empathy and understanding in every chapter of this book.
