Recent research has indicated that approximately one-third of the patients who present with disordered eating also have significant personality disorders or Axis-II co-morbidity. These patients are difficult to treat and usually require longer-term, informed individual psychotherapy. This important volume addresses the challenges of treating these patients, with chapters written by established, psychodynamically oriented clinicians who have been doing longer-term treatment. Editor Craig Johnson has fashioned a valuable contribution to the continuing search for effective treatment interventions for this group of patients. This volume is aimed at clinicians and researchers working in the field of eating disorders.
