                              1. McKisack et al. 1997 : Found that if patients had similar characteristics the therapy was longer and dealt with intensive sessions plus additional treatment components.

                                2. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy addresses "the cognitive aspects of bulimia, such as obsession with body weight, dichotomous thinking (an all-or nothing view of one-self) and negative self-image in combination with behavioral components of the disease such as binge eating and vomiting”
