Self-harm behavior and eating disorders : dynamics, assessment, and treatment by Ph.D. John L Levitt( Book )

10 editions published between 2004 and 2016 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Self-Harm Behavior and Eating Disorders explores the prevalent but largely uncharted relationship between self-injury behaviors and eating disorders symptoms. In the first major book to focus on this area, a renowned group of international scholars and practitioners addresses the subject from a variety of theoretical and practical perspectives." "This collection of case studies, theoretical exploration, and practical application forms a benchmark for the field, and offers a stepping stone for new research and innovative treatment strategies. In an area with little available information, previously spread out among diffuse sources, this volume represents the state-of-the-field resource for anyone working with complex eating disorders patients."--Jacket
Personality disorders and eating disorders : exploring the frontier by Randy A Sansone( Book )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite the overwhelming evidence supporting a multifaceted relationship between personality disorders and eating disorders, few attempts have been made to explore the interface between these two areas in a cogent synthesis with prevalence, etiology, and treatment approach with respect to both conditions. Sansone & Levitt propose to explore and define this relationship, with a single-volume of contributions on the intersection between the two fields. This work includes chapter contributions from authors both in the eating-disorder field and personality-disorder field, with a clinical focus. Divided into seven sections, the work begins with conceptualization of personality disorders, and then moves into an exploration of epidemiology and of etiology. The fourth section focuses on assessment in both fields, and the fifth section provides an overview of specific personality disorders. The sixth section discusses treatment approaches, and the volume closes with the prognostic implications of comorbid personality disorders in eating disorders. Topics include such issues as genetics, drug abuse, and childhood trauma, as they relate to both fields and as they affect the relationship between the two forms of disorders. This volume provides assessment and treatment of individuals suffering from personality disorders and eating disorders and enhances the understanding of both fields while establishing a foundation for discussing each as they interface with one another

Achievement Place : the teaching-family treatment model in a group-home setting by John L Levitt( Book )

5 editions published between 1981 and 1982 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper summarizes a diverse body of literature on Achievement Place, a community-based program for juveniles in group home settings. The program's Teaching-Family treatment model is described in detail as a base for presenting findings about its ability to change behaviors. Preliminary data from follow-up studies of attempts to extend the treatment method to other studies are also presented. The first section presents a brief overview of Achievement Place and the Teaching-Family model, together with a list of conclusions reached in a prior review. The details of the Teaching-Family model developed at Achievement Place are presented, including the point system, self-government system, and teaching parents. A second section presents some of the findings reported by researchers who have examined the program, its results and costs. The report concludes by raising certain questions future research on Achievement Place might pursue. (JAC)
