Research Exercises – Chapter 2 Exercise 1

Research Exercises: Models of Abnormality

The main paradigms of abnormal behavior-behavioral, biological, cognitive, psychodynamic, and sociocultural-vary widely. They look at behavior differently, begin with different assumptions, arrive at different conclusions, and utilize different treatment methods. While it is best to try to understand abnormal behavior from several perspectives, there are some perspectives which may be more appropriate during the treatment process than others.

Eating disorders are a case in point. While abnormal patterns of eating arise from a combination of factors-biological, psychodynamic, behavioral, cognitive, and sociocultural, cognitive-behavioral treatment has been a leading treatment for bulimia. In order to better understand and treat eating disorders such as bulimia nervosa and anorexia nervosa, it is wise to build upon existing knowledge, and utilize the strengths from an already widely accepted perspective. Researchers in the United Kingdom have developed a new form of psychotherapy that has the potential to treat more than eight out of ten cases of eating disorders in adults. This new “enhanced” form of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT-E) builds on and improves the current leading treatment for bulimia nervosa as recommended by the National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE).

Read Behavioral Therapy for Eating Disorders and answer the following questions along with incorporating what you have learned from Chapter 2 about how this therapeutic model may contribute to our understanding and treatment of eating disorders.
