Abstract

CANETE, Márcia Cecília Vianna; VITALLE, Maria Sylvia de Souza  and  SILVA, Flávia Calanca da. Anorexia nervosa: a case account with a successful approach. Fractal, Rev. Psicol. [online]. 2008, vol.20, n.2, pp.377-386. ISSN 1984-0292.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S1984-02922008000200005.

Anorexia nervosa (AN) is a severe disease of multifactorial etiology, that involves genetic predisposition, sociocultural factors, biological and psychological vulnerabilities. This article aims to analyze the kind of psychotherapeutic treatment used, in heterogenous group, without focusing on the anorexic behaviour through the description of a case of AN. We have also approached the implications of the disease in the social and family aspects, in the education and sexuality of the patient. The kind of psychotherapeutic treatment used, in heterogenous group, without focusing in the anorexic behaviour, proved effective in the adherence to treatment as well as in the evolution of the case.

Keywords : anorexia nervosa; psychotherapy group; hospital first-aid clinic; adolescent; adolescent behavior.
