dc.description.abstract Bulimia nervosa, which is characterised by binge eating followed by vomiting and/or purging, and a morbid fear of becoming fat (Russell, 1979) has only recently been identified and accepted as a discrete clinical syndrome (DSM III classification, 307.51), separate from the other major eating disorder classified in the DSM III, anorexia nervosa (307.10). This has important implications for management; what is most appropriate for anorexics is not necessarily appropriate for bulimics as was previously assumed. This thesis begins with a review of the literature on bulimia nervosa, focusing particularly on clinical features, aetiology and current management strategies. In the light of this, the inpatient treatment program for bulimic patients currently implemented by a local teaching hospital is reviewed and assessed, and recommendations for adjustments are made. It is argued that a cognitive behavioural model is very suitable when planning intervention. en_ZA
