Bulimia nervosa (BN), an eating disorder that is more common in adolescents than anorexia nervosa, has been eclipsed by public and professional focus on the latter. Following an overview of the disorder, psychiatrists Grange (U. of Chicago) and Lock (Stanford U.) present a manual for a family-based BN treatment program based on the empirically-supported Maudsley Hospital approach. Chapters reviewing its phases and clinical issues include annotated session transcripts, answers to frequently asked questions, and reproducible treatment logs. The manual concludes with a summary of a completed case.
