Counting the COST: a European collaboration on the efficiency of psychotherapeutic treatment of patients with eating disorders
Abstract:In 1993, a European collaboration on the efficiency of psychotherapeutic treatment of patients with Eating Disorders was initiated. The European Union supported it under the name COST Action B6 from 1994–2001. This unique opportunity to co‐ordinate research and to exchange clinical experience eventually attracted more than 200 researchers and clinicians from 19 European countries.
This is the first paper of a series of five through which we report on the general background, the organizational structure, the objectives, the design, the main findings, and specific methodological developments of COST Action B6.
