Clinical Follow-up

Eating Behavioural Disorders’ Psychotherapy

Pathologies of eating behavior, mainly Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa and Partial Syndrome (other non-specified eating disorders) are disorders which etiology is multidetermined, resulting from a complex interaction of psychological, biological, familiar and sociocultural factors. No isolated etiological factor will be able to explain the development of a eating behavioral disorder.

The treatment is complex, reason being that the nature and function of the nutritive symptoms assume the therapeutical approach to be multidisciplinary (psychologist, endocrinologist, nutritionist, psychiatrist), to be able to overcome with the psychological, psychiatric, medical and social aspects inherent to the eating disorder.

Highly Experienced Team

The clinical investigation and practice have shown that psychotherapy, particularly cognitive-behavioral, composes the standard treatment for eating behavioral disorders.
