    • Abstract:
      Practitioners working with female anorexic and bulimic clients encounter a myriad of reactions that can impact them emotionally and influence the effectiveness of their work. This quantitative study attempted to fill a gap in the literature measuring female therapist body image distortion and countertransference management when working with female anorexic and bulimic clients. Participants included 296 members of three professional eating disorder organizations who completed the Countertransference Factor Inventory (CFI), the Body Shape Questionnaire (BSQ), and a demographic questionnaire. The hypotheses of this study were confirmed in that levels of therapist body image distortion were inversely associated with countertransference management. Countertransference management was positively associated with years of work experience, postgraduate training, and supervision. No association was detected between countertransference management and clinical professional practice or therapist personal history of an eating disorder. Implications for practice include increasing work experience, postgraduate training and supervision to manage countertransference with this population.
