Bulimia: The Transgenerational View.
Roberto, Laura Giat
Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, v12 n3 p231-40 Jul 1986
Within families with bulimia, certain interactional patterns enable and perpetuate the patient's binge-eating and purging symptoms. A transgenerational treatment method is proposed, which intervenes in ongoing dysfunctional patterns, and provides a frame for creating a therapeutic metaphor ("legacy") to direct the therapy. Rationale and stages of the treatment process are outlined, and a case example prescribed. (Author/KS)
