12. Are the processes conducted differently for clients who are in different diagnoses or different stages in their recovery?

Not really, with the exception of severe food restriction and underweight or severe bulimia, as these clients may not have the mental and emotional capacity at this extreme, and their focus may need to be in a higher level of care so that…
