Abstract

Working with people with eating disorders is a matter of significant concern for health professionals. This study aimed to explore the attitudes of health professionals towards treating clients with eating disorders. A qualitative research design using consensual qualitative research (CQR) was used. A focus group consisting of 15 health professionals was held. The discussion was guided by a semi-structured interview schedule. Using the CQR procedure, three domains were identified: attitudes, countertransference, and barriers to providing treatment. These findings have important implications in the treatment of eating disorders.
