MetadataShow full item record
In this thesis the author examines which aspects of twelve-step recovery may be helpful for women recovering from Bulimia Nervosa. The author examines the current best practices for treating BN and finds that almost a third of individuals are not helped by these treatment approaches. A small survey was conducted to determine which aspects of twelve-step recovery women found most helpful in their recovery from Bulimia Nervosa. The two components of twelve-step recovery the women indicated were most helpful were attending twelve-step meetings and living one day at a time. The author asserts that twelve-step recovery programs may be used to complement the current best practice therapies in a multimodal treatment approach.
