Doing What Works
An Integrative System for the Treatment of Eating Disorders from
Diagnosis to Recovery
ISBN: 978-0-87101-390-3. 2009. Item #3903. 380 pages.
Eating disorders at times leave practitioners feeling as emotionally
challenged and out of control as the patients they treat. This is the first
book of its kind to provide support, direction, clarity, and optimism to
clinicians treating these disorders. In describing what to do and how
to do ‘what works,’ reader-friendly strategies and holistic guidelines
bring together science and human personality, protocols and art, skill
and instinct, evidence-based research and practicable clinical applications to provide
a fully integrative approach to eating disorders care.
In Doing What Works, Ms. Natenshon fills the gaps that currently exist in professional
education and practice and in the general understanding of what sets eating disorder
diagnosis and treatment apart from other disorders. The author, a psychotherapist
with 40 years of experience treating eating disorders in patients of all ages with a
specialty in working with children and families, speaks to health professionals and
parents as pivotal advocates for the child in treatment and recovery.
