The study contributes to the therapy of women with Binge Eating addictions, as it raises awareness of therapeutic-related content that could strengthen women and help them to cope with situations in their lives without the need to Binge. One of the significant variables for therapeutic work is the level of differentiation of the self. In addition, Identifying the types of defense mechanisms might help to match treatment to the woman's emotional needs. The current study found also that it is important to identify the environmental systems by which the addict is surrounded, such as whether woman is in an abusive relationship. Finally the study leads to the recognition that Binge Eating, which is usually treated with an emphasis on nutritional behavior change, is an addiction, and as such, it requires a combination of mental, nutritional and behavioral therapy. In view of this approach it is recommended that treating a woman who is addicted to Binge Eating should involve a multi-disciplinary team comprised of physicians, clinical dietitians and clinical psychotherapists.
