Full Description

Bulimia Nervosa is an eating disorder characterised by recurrent episodes of binge-eating followed by inappropriate compensatory behaviour. It affects 1-2% of the population, the majority of cases occurring in women between the ages of 16 and 35. This book provides a comprehensive and detailed review of the key psychological aspects of the disorder and places particular emphasis on cognitive considerations.

The coverage includes the key features of Bulimia Nervosa, associated problems, psychological theories and different treatment approaches. There is special focus on cognitive factors with case examples used to illustrate the two most articulated cognitive treatments for the disorder. Emerging topics, such as imagery and metacognition are covered, as are service issues, such as stepped care and practice guidelines.

Drawing on research and theory from cognitive and non-clinical areas of psychology, The Psychology of Bulimia Nervosa provides an original and challenging perspective on this debilitating condition. It questions assumptions about cognitive theory of Bulimia Nervosa and the role of standard cognitive therapy in treating the problem, suggests novel ideas, and a revised treatment and outlines areas for further research activity.
