This review initially discusses the most prominent models of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) for the eating disorders currently and considers the aims of the various treatments. The paper then reviews research trials examining the efficacy of Behaviour Therapy (BT) or CBT in comparison to other treatment types or control groups. There are numerous weaknesses identified across the trials, and few conclusions can be drawn because of this and the lack of consistent results. The NICE (National Institute for Clincial Excellence) guidelines for the treatment of Bulimia Nervosa (BN) and binge eating disorder in contrast consistently point to CBT. Within Anorexia Nervosa (AN) there is some suggestion for using CBT in those who are weight recovered. Dropout was highlighted as a recurrent problem across trials and this was considered further within the AN population. The clinical limitations of the research in the area of treatment trials and dropout were considered, and future directions suggested.
