Various attempts to treat these disturbances briefly have been made, but in most cases they proved to be unsuccessful due a very high relapse rate. To avoid a fearsome chronicity, a number of other factors, like alexithymia, low self-esteem, perfectionism, dissociation, dichotomous thinking, and others should be considered for treatment. Indications of how to deal with these factors in Ericksonian Brief Therapy will be offered.

Educational Objectives:

  1. List nine factors that can enhance the risk of chronicity in Eating Disorders.
  2. Describe five different strategies to make the treatment of Anorexia and Bulimia brief.
