Early Interventions: Does Age Matter?
Beate Herpertz-Dahlmann
Universitätsklinikum Aachen

There is some emerging evidence that the prevalence of eating disorders (EDs), especially anorexia nervosa (AN), is increasing in younger age groups, particularly in children. However, outcome of childhood AN seems to be worse than that of adolescent and adult AN, and severe and enduring AN often starts early in life. Nevertheless, in most follow-up studies higher age and longer duration of illness are important negative prognostic factors. This presentation will point out several gaps that makes early intervention in young age groups difficult: 1) late identification of cases, especially in childhood; 2) insufficient availability of specialized care. Moreover, there is a paucity of research on the proportion of patients who need adult mental health care after ED treatment in childhood/ adolescence and which patients characteristics should lead to continuity in care. In addition, there are many obstacles that prevent a smooth transition from child and adolescent to adult ED services because of insufficient cooperation between both disciplines and different treatment philosophies. Moreover, most of our treatment strategies are dialogue-oriented and do not reflect the necessity to prevent the formation of habits at an early stage of the disorder. Concluding, age definitely matters for outcome; however, which diagnostic and therapeutic strategies at what age are the most effective is still under discussion.
