Abstract

The studies reported in this research involved the application of the Eating Disorder Inventory - 2 to evaluate the perception of a bulimic's body image before and after an intervention was implemented. The intervention was a psycho-educational group approach, more specifically, attending Overeaters Anonymous meetings in attempt to improve the perception of body image. Results from the Eating Disorder Inventory - 2 suggest that there was no significant improvement in the perception of body image after the intervention took place. Additional investigation is warranted due to the complexity of the disorder and previous research which suggests that a longer time period will have a more significant effect on the perception of body image.
