Volume I contains a literature review exploring the prevalence of eating disorders in those who participate in weight category sports and an empirical paper investigating the attitudes towards emotional expression and eating disorders in men and women, exploring comparisons between the sexes. Volume II contains 5 Case Practice Reports. The first describes a behavioural and psychodynamic formulation of a 2 ½ year old boy with feeding difficulties. The second evaluates the implementation of the Choice and Partnership Approach (CAPA) in a Birmingham Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS). It asks the question “Does using CAPA reduce waiting times to assessment and treatment” and finds a reduction in waiting list times post CAPA implementation. The third report is a single case design study, assessing the efficacy of a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) intervention delivered to a 20 years old woman with obsessive compulsive disorder. The fourth report tells the story of a couple managing the difficulties that come with adjusting to chronic, progressive illness within a marriage, from a systemic perspective. The final piece is a presentation reporting the case study of a woman with anorexia nervosa who was treated using a CBT approach.
