According to Allan & Goss (2014) Identification of such patterns will help her plan her way forward and probably to avoid such factors that could make her engage in binge eating thus slowing the progression of the disorder. The second strategy which involves reading of psychoeducational handouts and treatment manuals as her homework is purposely done to make her aware of the treatment measures to be taken so she can psychologically prepare for the treatment process.
