Predictors of outcome in the treatment of bulimia nervosa (pages 330-332)

Outcome predictors of a cognitive behavioural group treatment for bulimia nervosa were examined. Pre‐treatment self‐esteem, binge frequency and ineffectiveness, but not duration of disorder, significantly predicted outcome on at least one measure (binge frequency or overall eating pathology) at post‐treatment and/or three‐month follow‐up. The results are related to previous studies and to theories of maintenance of the disorder.
