I have a pretty specific question... I'm wondering if the "Binge-Eating Disorder" is actually included in the DSM 4 as one of the disorders, or if it's just in there for one of future considerations.

    Apparently it is.

    Please check back later today and/or tomorrow to see if another tutor has a different answer.

  • Psychology -

    It is listed in the DSM-IV as "bulimia nervosa" (coded as #307.51).

    I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
