Recent studies show that group therapy for eating disorders is equally effective as individual treatment. So in the USMC - Huelva conducted a psychotherapeutic group aimed at people with these clinical pictures. The present work is to analyze the impact of the intervention group in the eating disorder symptoms, anxiety and depression, comparing the results obtained in the tests applied before and after treatment.

  3. - Inventory of Eating disorders (EDI)
