MedWorm: Binge Eating Disorder
Five-year outcome of cognitive behavioral therapy and exposure with response prevention for bulimia nervosa.
CONCLUSIONS: This study provides possible evidence of a conditioned inoculation from exposure treatment compared with relaxation training in long-term abstinence from binge eating at 5 years, and the frequency of purging over 5 years, but not for other features of BN. Differences among the groups were not found prior to 5 years. CBT is effective for BN, yet a substantial group remains unwell in the long term. Definition of recovery impacts markedly on recovery rates.
