Description - Special Problems in Managing Eating Disorders by Joel Yager
Patients with eating disorders present a challenging and complicated combination of problems that can be daunting to even the most experienced clinician. In fact, the existence of one or more comorbid psychiatric conditions along with an eating disorder diagnosis may be the rule rather than the exception. "Special Problems in Management of Eating Disorders" focuses on the frequent complicating conditions and comorbid states that accompany eating disorders. Clinicians who treat these patients face a myriad of challenges: developing a diagnosis and a differential diagnosis, prioritizing clinical problems in the development of treatment plans, and integrating various psychological, social, and biological treatment strategies in the care of these patients. In "Special Problems in Managing Eating Disorders" a group of experienced clinicians and researchers examine some of the most troublesome and challenging problems clinicians who treat patients with eating disorders face. Illustrated with case examples, this volume depicts the variety of complicated cases frequently seen in clinical settings.
It describes the presentations and treatment strategies for the most common and difficult to manage complications of eating disorders: concurrent mood syndromes, chemical dependency, personality disorders, laxative abuse, medical complications, diabetes, pregnancy, and treatment resistance.
