Bilker, Larry

Explores which therapist-patient gender matches facilitate most patient growth and avoid detriment to female patients with eating disorders. Distills relevant variables from literature on eating disorders, adolescence, transference and countertransference, and psychotherapy to suggest guidelines for effective matches. Sees therapist and patient preferences, patient's traumatic experiences, enmeshed versus disengaged patient relationships, and patient resistance related to preferred assignment. (Author/NB)
