Psychotherapy for Eating Disorders and Drug Abuse
Question: How is psychotherapy as a treatment of eating disorders and addiction done?
The aim of psychotherapeutic treatment is to teach patients to recognise
their own feelings and body signals and to manage the real problems. In
order to do this the psychotherapist must understand that these patients
are unable to recognise their bodily needs and that people with eating
disorders have learned to interpret the wrong signals as a need to eat.
The therapy must be directed towards getting the patients to experience
how various feelings are expressed in compulsive eating, hunger or craving. Food abusers
need to learn to recognise real hunger and separate it from other
They also need to understand, and be aware of, how they
function in order to manage their eating in a better way.
