Bonny 20 years on

This video shows a follow-up session with a woman I had treated 20 years prior for anorexia nervosa. When she came for treatment she was 16 years old, had suffered from anorexia for 8 months and had lost 9kgs.

She also had all the characteristics of anorexia, including food restriction and exercise compulsion. I worked with her using the model of Intensive Structural Therapy.

This video is a re-enactment of an actual session with Dr Fishman, shared with the permission of the client. Names have been changed.
