OBJECTIVE This study provides what the authors believe is the first empirical evaluation of cognitive behavior therapy as a posthospitalization treatment for anorexia nervosa in adults. METHOD After hospitalization, 33 patients with DSM-IV anorexia nervosa were randomly assigned to 1 year of outpatient cognitive behavior therapy or nutritional counseling. RESULTS The group receiving nutritional counseling relapsed significantly earlier and at a higher rate than the group receiving cognitive… 

Figures from this paper

Three psychotherapies for anorexia nervosa: a randomized, controlled trial.
The finding that nonspecific supportive clinical management was superior to more specialized psychotherapies was opposite to the primary hypothesis and challenges assumptions about the effective ingredients of successful treatments for anorexia nervosa.
Inpatient Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Adolescents with Anorexia Nervosa: Immediate and Longer-Term Effects
In patients admitted to a 20-week inpatient treatment program based on the enhanced cognitive behavior therapy (CBT-E), there was a substantial improvement in weight, eating disorder features, and general psychopathology that was well maintained at 12-month follow-up.
Maintenance treatment for anorexia nervosa: a comparison of cognitive behavior therapy and treatment as usual.
Preliminary evidence that CBT may be helpful in improving outcome and preventing relapse in weight-restored AN is provided, and time to relapse was significantly longer in the CBT condition when compared with MTAU.
Inpatient Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for Anorexia Nervosa: A Randomized Controlled Trial
These findings suggest that both versions of inpatient CBT-E are well accepted by these severely ill patients and might be a viable and promising treatment for severe anorexia nervosa.
The effect of group cognitive behavior therapy on Chinese patients with anorexia nervosa: an open label trial
G-CBT was as effective as individual outpatient treatment (IOT) typically provided to AN patients at the research site in facilitating weight regain, improving eating behaviors, and reducing ED and other symptoms and made more improvements in cognitive symptoms of the ED.
A Novel In-Home Relapse Prevention Treatment for Anorexia Nervosa
The present study outlines the pilot application of a posthospitalization, four-session in-home relapse prevention treatment for a woman with a long history of Anorexia nervosa and finds that the treatment was feasible and readily accepted by the patient.
Efficacy of post-inpatient aftercare treatments for anorexia nervosa: a systematic review of randomized controlled trials
Based on the very limited evidence so far, no clear recommendations can be made favoring a specific approach for post-inpatient aftercare in adult patients with AN and it should be a priority to increase uptake of aftercare interventions and to reduce dropout rates.
Fluoxetine after weight restoration in anorexia nervosa: a randomized controlled trial.
This study failed to demonstrate any benefit from fluoxetine in the treatment of patients with anorexia nervosa following weight restoration and future efforts should focus on developing new models to understand the persistence of this illness and on exploring new psychological and pharmacological treatment approaches.
Cognitive-Behavior Therapy With Eating Disorders: The Role of Medications in Treatment
Empirical studies support the usefulness of CBT with binge-eating disorder and suggest higher remission rates with combined treatment and more research is needed to adequately understand the respective roles of these therapies in a comprehensive treatment of eating disorders.


An evaluation of family therapy in anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa.
Family therapy was found to be more effective than individual therapy in patients whose illness was not chronic and had begun before the age of 19 years, and a more tentative finding was the greater value of individual supportive therapy in older patients.
Nutritional management and dietary counseling in bulimia nervosa: Some preliminary observations
There was a significant reduction in the frequency of binge eating and self-induced vomiting, and all patients ceased laxative abuse, and the role of the clinical nutritionist in the management of patients with bulimia is discussed.
Ten-year follow-up of anorexia nervosa: clinical course and outcome.
The high frequency and chronicity of the bulimic symptoms plus the high rate of weight relapse suggest that intensive intervention is needed to help anorexics restore and maintain their weight within a normal range and to decrease abnormal eating and weight control behaviours.
The long-term course of severe anorexia nervosa in adolescents: survival analysis of recovery, relapse, and outcome predictors over 10-15 years in a prospective study.
The intensive treatment received by these patients may account for the lower levels of morbidity and mortality when considered in relation to other reports in the follow-up literature.
Mortality in anorexia nervosa.

The aggregate estimated mortality rate for subjects with anorexia nervosa is substantially greater than that reported for female psychiatric inpatients and for the general population.
Anorexia nervosa "restricters" who purge: implications for subtyping anorexia nervosa.
A sub-typing system for anorexia nervosa based on the presence or absence of purging rather than binge eating is supported, combined with the medical risks associated with purging behaviors and the formidable problems associated with the definition of binge eating.
The Eating Disorders Examination
The following health care providers can perform initial examinations for Eating Disorders: a board-certified or board "eligible" psychiatrist; a licensed doctorate-level psychologist; or a clinical or counseling psychologist completing a one-year internship or residency under close supervision.
