9780765703187: Hungers and Compulsions: The Psychodynamic Treatment of Eating Disorders and Addictions

This book will help therapists understand and treat patients suffering from mild to dangerous forms of eating disorders, other compulsions and addictions, such as alcoholism, and even erotic attachments.

The chapters help therapists think creatively about these types of patients who are coming to therapy more frequently than ever, and to see the effects of treatment. The problems that arise in therapy are explored in essays about dissociation, self-regulation, self-destructive behavior, enactment, and other clinical issues.

The first half of the book addresses specific problems associated with patients who have eating disorders. The editors explore the patient's conflicts, affect regulation, transference, behavior, as well as the countertransference issues that inevitably arise in therapy. The second half broadens the scope and addresses a spectrum of addictions and associated issues such as creativity, sexuality and the transference.

Review:

Hungers and Compulsions, written primarily by colleagues who espouse an interpersonal/relational perspective, will be of interest to clinicians who follow other approaches as well. The reader is offered vivid accounts of close encounters with very challenging patients. Two leitmotifs of the book are the place of insight vs. affective engagement in the curative process, and the love-hate relationship with Freud and Ferenczi that many psychotherapists share. The final section on the ill-starred Winnicott/Khan relationship is a timely coda. (Arnold D. Richards M.D., editor, Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Assocation)

Petrucelli and Stuart bring together a diverse set of psychoanalytic and psychodynamic writers who address the issues of eating disorders, compulsions, and addictions from multiple perspectives. The authors focus on clinical material and explore psychoanalytically informed treatment. For a clinician working with any of the identified disorders or issues in this book, these collected writings can help inform their clinical practice and expand their knowledge of treatment. (Contemporary Psychology: The Apa Review Of Books)

This book offers a wise, often inspired, guide to the treatment of patients who present with eating disorders and other addictive behavior. Any clinician can learn from this inside view of the demands that working with this difficult group of patients places on their therapists. And the book is more, because taken together the chapters constitute a discourse on fundamental questions about human desire and will, and about our need to live authentically and creatively. I recommend it highly to everyone interested in treating eating disordered patients and to everyone who wants to understand the thinking of contemporary relationally oriented psychoanalysts and psychotherapists. (Jay Greenberg, Ph.D., training and supervising analyst, The William Alanson White Institute)
