Chapter 8 discusses eating disorders, and focuses on anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa. It outlines their clinical features, stages of cognitive–behavioural treatment methods (including the elimination of dieting, cognitive restructuring, addressing cognitive distortions, problem-solving training, and addressing body image misperception), subgroups of patients with bulimia nervosa that may require special consideration, group therapy, in-patient treatment, and the use of drugs in treatment.
