The aim of the study was to evaluate the efficacy of a brief group cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) program in treating a large cohort of patients diagnosed with bulimia nervosa.
Treatment outcome defined as reductions in bulimia related behavioral symptoms and bulimia related distress was examined in 205 consecutive new patients enrolled in an eight-session group CBT program.
Significant reductions in eating disorder pathology were found on all measures of bulimia related behavioral symptoms, as well as on all measures of bulimia related distress.
There is strong evidence for the efficacy of brief group CBT in treating patients with bulimia nervosa. © 2013 by Wiley Periodicals, Inc. (Int J Eat Disord 2013; 46:560–562)
