Compliance with a self-care manual for bulimia nervosa: predictors and outcome.

Author information

  • 1Eating Disorder Research Group, Institute of Psychiatry, London, UK.


Self-directed treatment has been shown to be effective in the treatment of bulimia nervosa. This paper shows that compliance with a manual is related to outcome. Forty per cent of high compliers achieved full remission after eight weeks with a manual, compared with only 5 per cent of low compliers. Furthermore, patients with greater weight and shape concerns were less likely to use a manual while those with a longer duration of illness were more likely to use it.
