The objective of this summary chapter is to provide readers with a synopsis of the key points made about exposure-based therapy for eating disorders throughout the book. Readers are reminded of the theoretically derived rationale for applying exposure-based therapy to eating disorders and that a growing body of literature demonstrates the efficacy of this approach. Readers are also reminded of several critical steps that need to be taken to prepare patients for exposure therapy effectively. The chapter summarizes the problem-specific exposure interventions that are covered in the book, such as body-focused exposure for body image anxiety. Lastly, the chapter provides a discussion of future directions in both research and clinical practice of exposure therapy for eating disorders.
