Bulimia -- Treatment;


" Although our society has become increasingly preoccupied with eating and weight, it is only relatively recently that publicity has been given to eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa and bulimia" (Hendrick, 1985, p. 275). For purposes of this paper, the author is only going to deal with bulimia. Bulimia has primarily been a concern among college-age women, but over the past decade the prevalence of the disorder has increased dramatically among adolescent females (Omizo & Omizo, 1992). The increasing incidence of bulimia warrants concern for those professionals working with adolescents, such as school counselors and therapists in private practice or agencies. Since bulimia is a "serious disorder that can have a drastic impact on the quality and direction of an individual's life" (Butterfield, McKay, Peters, & Swassing, 1984, p. 183), it is important to learn what can be done to prevent this disorder and which treatment modes are most effective with this population.
