Efecto de la terapia de aceptación y compromiso centrada en reducir pensamiento negativo repetitivo en personas con bulimia nerviosa.
Vargas Nieto, Juan Camilo | 2019
Eating disorders are a global problem whose prevalence has been increased and being one of the main causes of disease in young women. Bulimia Nervosa (BN) has an important prevalence and the Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, which became the first choice for its intervention due to the empirical evidence obtained. However, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy has been very well received because it is a transdiagnostic treatment although few studies have been conducted in eating disorders. The aim of this study is to analyze the effect of a brief ACT protocol focused on dismantling patterns of repetitive negative thinking in people suffering from BN. In the results, it was possible to find an initial favorable view of the behavior of the therapy in this population, suggesting the need to continue replicating the work done and developing new strategies from ACT that favor improvement in this population.
