"Women with eating disorders who are age 30 and above fly under the radar in terms of getting noticed and treated," said Dr. Tamara Pryor, Clinical Director of the Eating Disorder Center of Denver and the author of this landmark study.
The timely name puts some responsibility on a culture that supports and encourages fountain of youth fixes" said Pryor. Eating disorders actually stunt people's emotional development," Pryor said.


The Transition Phase of Treatment: A New Model Part 1. Beginning at the Beginning - Eating Disorders Review

At the Eating Disorder Center of Denver (EDC-D), however, transition begins when the patient first walks in the door, according to Center Director Kenneth Weiner, MD, and Clinical Director Tamara Pryor, PhD.
Before joining the staff at EDC-D two years ago, Dr. Pryor ran an eating disorder program in Wichita, KN. A study by her group gave her a new perspective on inpatient care. She says, "We realized we were operating with the assumption that more is better and therefore inpatient care was a more effective form of treatment. We decided to do a study to find out if inpatients did better than outpatients. We were very surprised to find that outpatients did better than outpatients at 6 months and again at a 2-year follow-up." The outpatients reported better outcomes because they had a greater sense of ownership of their recovery. She added that many of the patients who were inpatients felt that although they were able to interrupt their hurtful behaviors and did well in the hospital, but when they left the hospital they claimed, it was like falling off a cliff.' They did not have the life skills to incorporate the changes into their lives once they left the program. Dr. Pryor also noted that compared to inpatients, outpatients had a better sense of self and more confidence to continue in their recovery. Joining the Denver program provided evidence of how an empowerment model that emphasizes increasing self-directedness through transition work can truly effect change. Patients in the partial hospitalization program work all day in treatment programs, then go home to their apartments or homes in the evening and continue to practice their skills in the outside world. And, Dr. Pryor noted, if they have a problem or challenge with behaviors, they can come back the next day to discuss it, and to see what they might have done differently. She added, "We are working on transition every day they are here.


The Transition Phase of Treatment: A New Model - Part 2. Working with The Transition Team - Eating Disorders Review

This also involves examining all of the patient's challenges and critical areas for growth, says EDC-D Clinical Director Tamara Pryor, PhD.
Dr. Pryor adds that the transition team also helps patients evaluate how they are going to take the new skills they have developed during treatment home, and how they are going to maintain their new motivation and commitment to staying well. Patients are very involved in the process, and are encouraged to work on goal-setting and analyzing their progress, she adds. They can work on any type of area that will be challenging for them once they are back home, says Dr. Pryor.
