Leading researchers in acceptance and commitment therapy suggest to readers struggling with anorexia that strategies to control their disorder are themselves problems.

The Short Term Assessment of Risk and Treatability (START) is a brief clinical guide for the dynamic assessment of seven often inter-related risks and treatability. Assessment of risks include: 1/ risk of violence to others; 2/ risk of self-harm; 3/ risk of suicide; 4/ risk of unauthorized leave; 5/ risk of substance use; 6/ risk of self-neglect; and 7/ risk of being victimized. It provides for the differential coding of positive attributes or strengths on a reasonable and manageable number of items and allows for the recording of case-specific risk factors. The START is intended for interdisciplinary use.
