Approximately 14 million women in the United States are battling with the disease Anorexia Nervosa, AN, which is described as “one of the least understood and most intractable of all mental illnesses” (Schindehette, Sandler, Nelson and Seaman, 2003, p. 136). Many of the victims of this disease will battle When it for the rest of their lives. However, if AN is diagnosed early, during the teen years, it is possible to cure it with appropriate treatment (Cooper, 2001). Therefore, adolescent women struggling with AN need effective treatment, and today, after four decades of research, there is an increasing number of treatment options ranging from counseling, to nutritional therapy, to medication. Yet, some researchers and victims still advocate that there is a need for further research in this area (Kaplan, 2002; Hendricks, 2003).

Upon recognizing symptoms, such as strict dieting, weight loss, binge eating or fasting, feeling dizzy, weak, and/or depressed, in addition to insomnia, family members should seek out the advice of a health care provider. The health care provider will take a complete medical history as well as do a physical examination (Cooper, 2001). After this process is complete, then the doctor can begin treating the patient with AN, which may include referrals to specialists in counseling, nutrition and other medical fields.
Sample APA Paper 3 Counseling One of the more traditional forms of treatment is counseling, which is also referred to as psychotherapy. The goal of psychotherapy is to work with the patient so that through therapy she will be able to control her eating and maintain her body weight. There are two primary types of psychotherapy, and they are individual therapy and family therapy. Individual Therapy Individual therapy counsels one on one with the patient. Sometimes there is a team of medical specialists, yet the therapy sessions are between the patient and her doctor(s). This type of therapy has mixed results. According to an article in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (1999), individual therapy is superior when used in treating older adolescents and those who have late-onset AN (Robin et al.), and a 2003 publication in The American Journal of Psychiatry concurs with this finding (Pike, Walsh, Vitousek, Wilson and Bauer). However, both articles’ findings state that individual therapy is not the best treatment for young adolescents or those with early-onset AN. Family Therapy While individual therapy does not work well with young adolescents or patients with early-onset AN, family therapy seems to have made significant strides in treating this group of patients. In fact the Canadian Journal of Psychiatry stated, “without the involvement of the parents and family as therapeutic allies, weight gain is...
