Civil Commitment in the Treatment of Eating Disorders presents a comprehensive view on the use of involuntary hospitalization in the treatment of patients with anorexia and other eating disorders. This volume synthesizes the existing empirical data and ethical perspectives surrounding this sometimes controversial approach to treatment in order to establish a balanced, compassionate understanding of current research and patient experiences. Particular attention is paid to the use and misuse of persuasion and coercion in civil commitment and to when these concepts are applicable. This accessible new volume prepares treatment providers to understand the role of civil commitment in their treatment practices and in patients' recovery.
