This paper selectively addresses methodological issues in treatment outcome studies of bulimia. Among the issues examined are the following: methodological strengths; problems, such as the comparability of treatments and lack of long-term follow-ups; dependent measures and their interrelationships; how to gauge treatment success and attrition rates. The quality of studies reflects lessons learned in research with other disorders. Increasingly, studies are showing greater methodological rigor.
