Analytic in-patient therapy (n = 32) and systemic out-patient therapy (n = 39) were applied to patients with bulimia nervosa, and the effects were evaluated 14, 26 and 38 months after the start of the treatments. Our assumptions about the general efficacy of both conflict-orientated techniques were confirmed: both therapies satisfactorily reduced the symptomatic behaviour, as well as secondary factors related to bulimia nervosa, in the long term. However, we could not identify differential effects of the two treatment regimes, which we had expected with regard to the very different therapeutic approaches. The similarities of outcome of both therapies predominate, with slightly better results in the case of the analytic in-patient treatment. The results are discussed with regard to the assumption that specific healing factors are involved in conflict-orientated treatments in addition to the "common factors' of psychotherapy.
