This study aims to investigate the long-term effectiveness of an out-patient eating disorder program. Research has found cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) to be an effective method in the treatment of eating disorders. However, there is a paucity of effectiveness studies examining real-world interventions and dissemination and implementation of the approach in real-world clinical practice has been limited. This study will examine the effectiveness of a Melbourne based eating disorder outpatient program in reducing eating disorder related behaviours (e.g. binging and purging), cognitions (e.g. body image perception) and comorbidities (e.g. anxiety). The study will involve analysis of retrospective clinical and questionnaire data collected pre, during and post treatment. It will also examine questionnaire follow-up data completed sometime after treatment discharge. Results of this study will provide much needed information about thea??real-worlda??effectiveness of CBT in an eating disorder out-patient program.
