Introduction:

This chapter presents an overview of Bulimia, including a description of the syndrome and its effects, as well as a review of the research findings on its etiology and treatment. The chapter also discusses the research on which the authors’ Bulimia treatment program is based and the rationale for that program. Although the handbook is intended primarily for the clinician, a review of the research findings on this eating disorder is important because media reports on the syndrome have sensationalized it and have blurred the distinction between fact and myth. In addition, this chapter provides an outline of the rest of the book and an introduction to the treatment program.

Several years ago, we became interested in learning how Eating Disorder developed so that we could design a program to help binge eaters and purgers. We wanted to see how bulimic women were different from binge eaters and non-binge eaters. We found that bulimic women had several common personality characteristics in addition to their disturbed eating behaviors. Other researchers have also found certain personality deficits to be associated with bulimia. Despite the awareness of the clinical features associated with Eating Disorder, no treatment program for this disorder has systematically addressed them in its approach.
