Long-Term Treatment of Eating Disorders: Tools for a Journey
Part 2: A Perspective from Research
By Kathryn J. Zerbe, MD, Oregon Psychoanalytic Center, Portland, Oregon

In the second article of a two-part series, Dr. Zerbe describes four principles she finds useful in working with patients who need longer-term psychotherapy who or tend to stay in in treatment for at least one year. One principle is a notion gaining traction in contemporary psychoanalysis and psychodynamic psychotherapy that the best way to alleviate suffering is to actually help the patient “observe, process, speak about, draw attention to, and bear emotional pain” in order to eventually transform it.
