Abstract

In this study we discuss the results at a 7 year follow-up of a treatment package for regression including anorexia nervosa. The findings revealed that the client, a mentally retarded woman, was able to maintain treatment gains. Collateral benefits were also seen in social, vocational and self-help areas. The maintenance of these improved skills across response classes and settings suggests that the woman's behavior had come under the influence of natural reinforcers in her environment.
