Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

21 Scopus citations


Assessment of binge eating and purging in bulimia nervosa necessarily relies upon self‐report. The reliability and validity of self‐report is discussed, with special reference to other substance abuse disorders. The Time Line follow back technique is recommended as a means of obtaining more precise, accurate, and clinically useful self‐reports of binge eating and purging. The necessity for multidimensional assessment of treatment effects is underscored, with suggestions of the form this might take.
