CBT is effective in identifying and challenging the negative thought and behavioural patterns that contribute to and maintain the individual’s eating disorder.
CBT is often recommended as the first-line of treatment for eating disorders. However, if it is ineffective for an individual, Dialectic Behavioural Therapy (DBT) is another effective therapy modality. For severe cases of eating disorders, the individual can also consider residential treatment programs or partial hospitalization.
The number of sessions depends on the individual’s condition and response to treatment.
