Hungers and Compulsions: The Psychodynamic Treatment of Eating . The Introduction tells us that the book grew out of a conference given by the William Alanson White Institute.

The title of this book is a little misleading. Compulsions, such as in behavior, are not addressed here.

You’re the one that I want : Appetite, agency, and the gendered self.

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.

Hungers and Compulsions, co-edited by Jean Petrucelli, Ph.D. and Catherine Stuart, Ph.D. is an ambitious, thought-provoking and perhaps even life-altering, collection of scholarly writings by various experts on "addiction" in the broadest sense of the term.
While the book is targeted primarily at professionals in the fields of psychology/psychiatry, etc., as a lay person, I find myself reading it "compulsively" (if you'll excuse the pun), since it offers fascinating insights into areas which may touch our lives or the lives of those we know -- hunger disorders, cigarette smoking, alcoholism and drug addiction, etc.
The book also explores the patient-therapist relationship, from unique vantage points: often that of the therapist and his or her own needs or the analysis of a literary character's behavior.
If you are looking for substantive summer reading, I think you'll find it dulce et utile. After reading the first few chapters, I was shocked to find myself in the exercise room for the first time in my life! Perhaps it was the image of the coughing cigarette smoker or the patient who yanked and ate her hair. Hopefully, it will inspire others towards positive change, as well.

This book is fascinating. I was delighted that - although I am not a psychoanalyst - the book is written with such clarity that I could easily understand its complex psychological concepts.
I was attracted to the book because I am a writer and it contains a section about creativity and addiction which I found extraordinarily insightful.
This book makes excellent reading and is also a useful tool for self-examination.
