Divergent theories of Object Relations, Self-Psychology, Attachment, and the Relational Model are presented to explain the root causes of early developmental failures that lead to the personality disorders of anorectics & bulimics. Special treatment consideration is given to (1) establishing the therapeutic frame, (2) maintaining boundaries, (3) resolving the unthinkable primitive agonies, and (4) managing transference and countertransference. Students are encouraged to discuss their treatment concerns and the instructor will integrate these essential ideas with clinical material.
