A study published in Behaviour Research and Therapy found a significant improvement in eating disorder symptoms (behavior and cognitions), among adolescent participants (n=101) with bulimia nervosa (BN) or bulimic symptomatology following the completion of an internet-based cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) intervention. These findings suggest that an internet-based approach could serve as an initial intervention for adolescents with bulimic symptomatology.
