Riccardo Dalle Grave, MD, is head of the Department of Eating and Weight Disorders at Villa
Garda Hospital, Italy. This highly specialized department houses 18 inpatient beds and 14 day-care beds for eating disorder patients, 20 beds for severely obese patients, and an outpatient service for eating disorder and obesity patients. It was thanks to his experience in this department that he conceived the original stepped-care approach for treating eating disorders, based entirely on enhanced cognitive behavioral therapy.
In addition to his clinical and research activities, he is on the editorial board of the European Eating Disorder Review, Eating and Weight Disorder and the Journal of Eating Disorders. He is also editor of the Italian journal Emozioni e Cibo, past-president of the Italian Association of Eating and Weight Disorders (AIDAP), member of the executive board of the Italian Society for Obesity (SIO), and a member of both the Eating Disorder Research Society and the Academy of Eating Disorders. Among other works, he has published numerous peer-reviewed scientific articles, and is author of several books and book chapters on the treatment of eating disorders and obesity.

About the Author
Dr. Dalle Grave has developed a thoughtful adaptation of enhanced Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, referred to as Multistep CBT, which will allow more unified and consistent treatment for individuals suffering from eating disorders across inpatient and outpatient settings. Multistep enhanced CBT for inpatient settings will allow treatment planning that is driven by a single unified theoretical model, rather than the typical eclectic approach that is more fragmented, thus representing a curial step forward in providing the optimal evidence-based care for individuals with a variety of eating disorders.

Riccardo Dalle Grave is one of the people I most trust to connect empirically based treatments with the management of eating disorders in clinical settings. This book is unique, and will be valuable for a wide array of professionals working in the field.

Dr. Dalle Grave has provided the field with a truly innovative and clinically sensitive approach to a full range of levels of care for eating disorder patients. Most notably, he carefully minds the evidence base surrounding Cognitive Behavior Therapy-Enhanced as he outlines new applications in hospital based environments. This remarkable text most clearly speaks to Dr. Dalle Grave’s strong appreciation of empirical science and his careful clinical wisdom as he strives to find effective ways to treat eating disorder patients in the greatest need.
