This groundbreaking book gives clinicians a new set of tools for helping people overcome binge-eating disorder and bulimia. It presents an adaptation of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) developed expressly for this population. What makes this research-based approach unique is its focus on disordered eating as a problem of emotional dysregulation. Featuring vivid case examples and 32 reproducibles, the book shows how to put an end to binge eating and purging by teaching clients more adaptive ways to manage painful emotions. Step-by-step guidelines are provided for implementing DBT skills training in mindfulness, emotion regulation, and distress tolerance, including a specially tailored skill, mindful eating.

Her postdoctoral fellowship was also at Stanford, where she worked closely with W. Stewart Agras, MD, and his eating disorders research team. Dr. Safer's research and clinical work focus on treating eating disorders in adults and adolescents utilizing DBT and other empirically validated treatments.
