More and more clinicians as well as researchers realize thatanorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa often are extremely
difficult to treat and that the short-term outcome can be
very misleading. In many cases these disordersprevail for a
long period of time and can have serious consequences for
the patient's further life. This book gives a detailed over-
view oftoday's knowledge regarding the long-term outcome of
the treatment of anorexic and bulimic patients, many of whom
were treated in highly spezialized centers. Experts from bo-
th Europe and the U.S. report on theirmost recent research.
Their studies include medical as well as psychosocial and
psychiatric aspects of eating disorders. Clinicians with
long experience in the treatment of eating disorder patients
discuss the important practical implications of these rese-
arch findings. The information given in this book is helpful
for both treatment and prevention of eating disorders.Finally, concrete guidelines show as how to conduct further
follow-up studies in this field.
