Psychotherapy in the treatment of eating disorders: The importance of motivation, psychoeducation, and the treatment of body image.
Psychotherapy is one of the key several stages necessary for the process of treating eating disorders (ED) patients.
There are numerous skills required from clinicians in order for psychotherapy to be effective.
Regardless of the type of psychotherapy among those, significant skills are motivation and psychoeducation. In addition, among the specific cognitions for ED treatment, a crucial role plays the psychotherapy for body image.
1. To be effective, motivational enhancement must address the following themes. The patient needs to be enabled to:
• get a sense of their potential for change, by examining personal resources
• consider both the advantages and the disadvantages of their behaviors, both in
the short term and in the long term.
• reflect on where they are now, where they want to be in the future, and whether the difference can be addressed through the use of their current strategies.
2. For psychoeducation to be effective, it needs to be interwoven with the use of cognitive and
behavioral strategies that help the patient to establish the validity of the new information.
3. Modifying body image is a complex issue within eating disorders, so it is vital to formulate it carefully. Such difficulties are multifaceted, and treatment will depend on identifying the issues that are key for each and every individual patient we work with.
