Written by Janet Treasure BSc (Physiol) PhD MBBS FRCP FRCPsych, Elizabeth McNaught MBBS DRCOG, and Nick Pollard BSc (Psych) MBPsS FRSA, the Oxford Specialist Handbook on Eating Disorders is a one-stop-shop reference book.

It covers the aetiology, epidemiology, risk factors, diagnostic criteria, management and treatment for: anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, ARFID, pica, rumination disorder, OSFED, and a number of emerging eating disorder diagnoses. It also covers common comorbidities, ethical and legal aspects, and acute emergency care (including the new guidelines on managing emergencies in eating disorders – MEED – from the Royal College of Psychiatrists).

Each chapter is accompanied by case stories drawn from real-life examples and culminates in a summary of the key need-to-know facts.
