The MANTRA Workbook

A Cognitive Interpersonal Therapy Workbook for Treating Anorexia Nervosa: The Maudsley Model (Schmidt, Startup and Treasure, 2019)

MANTRA (Maudsley Model of Anorexia Nervosa Treatment for Adults) is structured around a workbook which empowers patients to control their own therapeutic journey. The treatment approach and workbook emerged from listening carefully to patients and carers in order to understand their perspective and their needs for a successful treatment. The book carefully walks the reader down a path of recovery, richly augmenting text with exercises and illustrations to engage them in the process of achieving wellness. By including true stories from people who have recovered, the authors invite them to enter the recovery space of those who have successfully overcome the burden of anorexia nervosa.


The workbook is essential to the delivery of MANTRA but not all sections will be relevant to all patients. It is intended to be used flexibly both within and between sessions.

The book can be purchased online through various outlets, including Routledge, Waterstones and Amazon.

“I felt it was very good working with my therapist in terms of adapting the book to make it suitable for me.”
