Course of eating disorders (ED) in patients treated in Day Hospital is analyzed by evaluating 24 women at baseline and approximately 3 years after initial assessment, in several variables: personality factors, motivation, psychological symptoms, severity, self-esteem, self-construction, construction of parental figures and polarization. Clinical variables of the history of the disorder are also included. 70.8% of the patients completed treatment and, 3 years after intake, 47.06% relapsed. The following factors seem to be associated with negative course: severity of ED, high scores on relapse (Transtheoretical Model of Change) and opening to experience, long period between onset of symptoms and first treatment, self-perception of fatness body image? low self-esteem prior to ED, and negative perception of their mother.
