Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa are complex illnesses and the assumed causes have been addressed from different theoretical perspectives. This seminar will explore the range of developmental failures that lead to the underlying personality disorders of the eating-disordered patient. We will address the divergent theoretical perspectives of Object Relations, Self-Psychology, Attachment, and the Relational Model to better explain the root causes of these early developmental failures. The role of transference/ counter-transference in the clinical process is examined and treatment considerations are discussed.
