"This book is for the practitioner who wishes to incorporate therapy that draws on clients' spirituality or religious background as a resource for recovery from eating disorders. There is growing empirical evidence that spiritual approaches to treating clients are as effective, and sometimes more effective, than secular ones, particularly with religiously devout clients. In this book, the authors build on the literature documenting the influence of client religiousness and spirituality on the development and maintenance of as well as the recovery from eating disorders. Drawing on their many years of clinical experience, the authors show how a theistic perspective of healing and change can enrich therapies currently in practice for eating disorders, including individual, group, and family therapy as well as 12-step programs. They propose an agenda for future research focusing on measures and research designs that will help investigators study the etiology of eating disorders as well as treatment outcomes as they relate to clients' public and private devotion and expressions of spirituality"--Jacket.
