    • Abstract:
      This theoretical dissertation examined the manner in which cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and interpersonal therapy (IPT) were integrated for the treatment of bulimia nervosa. The published literature on bulimia nervosa treatment indicates that CBT is the most effective short-term therapy to alleviate binge-purge behaviors associated with bulimia nervosa. However, long-term results indicate that those individuals receiving CBT have a high rate of relapse in binge-purge behaviors. One plausible explanation for the large numbers of relapse cases in short-term CBT treatment is its failure to focus on interpersonal relationship difficulties, which are often a contributing factor to bulimia nervosa development. IPT focuses on present interpersonal relationship difficulties and does not discuss eating behaviors. An integrative treatment is necessary. Theoretical integration was utilized to create an integrative treatment, by combining common factors and identifying the theoretical bases of CBT and IPT. An integrative treatment, as established in this theoretical dissertation will consist of 16-20 sessions and will take place in three phases. Focus is on CBT techniques with an interpersonal emphasis. An integration of the two treatment models will reduce binge-purge behavior through CBT mechanisms and reduce interpersonal deficits through IPT mechanisms. The hope is that the relapse rate of bulimia nervosa will decrease. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved)
