dr farrell book.jpgCongratulations to our own Dr. Nicholas Farrell on the release of his new co-authored book, Exposure Therapy for Eating Disorders. Written in collaboration with Dr. Carolyn Black Becker and Dr. Glenn Waller, the book is the first of its kind to provide structured guidance on using exposure and response prevention therapy (ERP) for patients with eating disorders.

“Research increasingly shows that fear and avoidance play key roles in eating disorders. This treatment is specifically designed to address these features head on,” explains Dr. Farrell. “Prior to this book, there was little guidance and training for clinicians who wanted to use exposure therapy in their practice. This book fills that gap.”

As part of the ABCT Clinical Practice Series on cutting edge treatments, the book:

  • Details necessary steps for successful implementation of exposure therapy, a core component of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for eating disorders
  • Provides novel clinical advice from anxiety disorders literature to maximize the effectiveness of eating disorder treatment
  • Directly addresses therapist factors that can affect the conduct and impact of exposure therapy for eating disorders, including fear of causing harm to patients, and other challenges that may impede delivery of exposure therapy

As the clinical director of Rogers’ Eating Disorder Recovery in Oconomowoc, Dr. Farrell has expertise in evidence-based psychological treatments, particularly those that emphasize exposure therapy for eating and anxiety disorders.

Visit the store page for Exposure Therapy for Eating Disorders to learn more about Dr. Farrell’s new book. Copies will be available at Rogers sites throughout the system, so watch for the book soon.
