dsm iv tr diagnosis 307 1 anorexia nervosa
DSM-IV-TR Diagnosis: 307.1 Anorexia Nervosa

A. Refusal to maintain body at or above a minimally normal weight for age and height

B. Intense fear of gaining weight or becoming fat even though underweight

C. Disturbance in the way in which one’s body weight or shape is experienced, undue influence of body weight or shape on self-evaluation, or denial of the seriousness of the current low body weight

D. In postmenarcheal females, amenorrhea (absence of at least 3 consecutive menstrual cycles or only following hormone administration)

Subtypes: Restricting or Binge Eating/Purging

dsm iv tr diagnosis 307 51 bulimia nervosa
DSM-IV-TR Diagnosis:307.51 Bulimia Nervosa
  • Recurrent episodes of binge eating, defined as:
    • Eating, in a discrete period of time (e.g., 2-hour period), an amount of food that is definitely larger than most people would eat during a similar period of time & under similar circumstances.
    • A sense of lack of control over eating during the episode.
  • Recurrent, inappropriate compensatory behavior in order to prevent weight gain (self-induced vomiting; misuse of laxatives, diuretics, enemas, or other medications; fasting; or excessive exercise).
  • Binge eating and inappropriate compensatory behaviors both occur, on average, at least twice per week for 3 months.
  • Self-evaluation is unduly influenced by body shape and weight.
  • Does not occur exclusively during episodes of Anorexia Nervosa.

Subtypes: Purging and Non-purging type.

dsm iv tr diagnosis 307 50 ed nos
DSM-IV-TR Diagnosis:307.50 ED NOS
  • Any disorder of eating that does not meet the criteria for a specific eating disorder. Examples:
    • Females: All criteria of AN met except amenorrhea.
    • All criteria for AN met except weight is in normal range.
    • All criteria for BN met except that binge eating and compensatory mechanisms occur less frequently than twice per week over the course of three months.
    • Regular use of inappropriate compensatory behaviors after normal consumption.
    • Repeatedly chewing and spitting out large amounts of food.
    • Binge Eating Disorder: Binge eating in the absence of inappropriate compensatory behaviors.
dsm iv tr diagnosis 300 7 body dysmorphic disorder
DSM-IV-TR Diagnosis:300.7 Body Dysmorphic Disorder

A. Preoccupation with an imagined defect in appearance. If a slight physical anomaly is present, the person’s concern is markedly excessive.

B. The preoccupation causes clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning.

C. The preoccupation is not better accounted for by another mental disorder (e.g., dissatisfaction with body shape and size in Anorexia Nervosa).

empirically based treatment approaches
Empirically BasedTreatment Approaches
  • Evidence Based Treatment?
    • No evidence-based data for university treatment programs
    • Individual & group work
    • AN: No specific treatment is superior, Maudsley and family-based recently popular
    • BN & BED: CBT, less DBT & IPT
  • Brief therapy models vs. ED treatment and recovery
    • 76% AN reach full recovery 10-15 years
    • 5-6 years to reach partial recovery (Strober, Freeman, & Morell, 1997)
  • Advantages and Disadvantages of each approach in UCC
