New Treatment Guide for Eating Disorders Available to Healthcare Professionals

Nation's Leading Eating Disorders Treatment Center Offers a New

Comprehensive Guide to the Mysterious World of Eating Disorders

PHOENIX, May 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Remuda Programs for Eating Disorders (, the nation's leading and largest inpatient treatment center for women and girls suffering from eating disorders, has published Eating Disorders: A Handbook of Christian Treatment, a comprehensive guide to the mysterious world of eating disorders. The handbook explains eating disorders, along with proper assessment and intervention, across the bio-psycho-social-spiritual continuum. It was written by a multidisciplinary team to be of value to a broad range of healthcare and pastoral professionals, practitioners, educators and students. The handbook offers state-of-the-art, scientifically valid knowledge of anorexia and bulimia nervosa, integrated carefully with non-denominational Christianity.

"There are very few comprehensive treatment manuals to guide healthcare professionals in treating eating disorders," said Edward Cumella, PhD, executive director of Remuda Programs for Eating Disorders. "Because we're the leading eating disorder treatment center in the nation, with the most successful outcomes, it was our mission to educate healthcare professionals about the best methods of treating these deadly diseases."

Currently, there are no treatment manuals for eating disorders that integrate scientifically valid and Biblically based approaches. Eating Disorders: A Handbook of Christian Treatment explores eating disorders as multi-dimensional illnesses. The biological dimension includes human genetics, neurochemistry, nutrition and medications. The psychological dimension spans emotions, thinking patterns, personal choice and free will. The social dimension centers on peers, family and intimate relationships influenced by unique cultural pressures. The spiritual dimension recognizes the depth and healing power of human spirituality in the context of Christian redemption, forgiveness and grace.

The comprehensive handbook is the definitive statement on eating disorders offered by the clinical leaders of the most successful eating disorder treatment program in the world. It was co-written by Edward Cumella, a clinical psychologist with 20 years experience; Marian Eberly, RN, MSW, LCSW, DAPA, a corporate director; and David Wall, MDiv, PhD, the corporate psychology director at Remuda Programs for Eating Disorders.

"Eating disorders rarely occur in isolation," adds Cumella. "Those who suffer often have depression, anxiety, substance use, trauma, self-injurious behavior, and other concomitant concerns. These co-occurring issues interact with eating disorders synergistically and need to be understood and addressed for true recovery to begin. This new handbook covers these co-occurring issues and explains how to help people with eating and related disorders to heal in a lasting way."
