Clinicians May Have Negative Attitudes Toward Patients With Eating Disorders

A group of Boston-based researchers have found that inexperienced clinicians hold more negative attitudes toward patients with eating disorders than toward other patient groups, unlike experienced psychotherapists, according to a study in the January Psychiatric Services. Nonetheless, clinicians treating patients with eating disorders feel frustrated, helpless, incompetent, and worried. "Clinician attitudes, knowledge, and stigma likely adversely affect both the quality and the availability of services for patients with eating disorders," said the researchers.

Also in the news, a number of diagnostic changes regarding eating disorders has been proposed for DSM-5. Read more in Psychiatric News by clicking here.
