Purpose of review Mindfulness, the practice of paying attention to the present moment, purposefully and nonjudgmentally, has been gaining popularity as adjunct treatment for adolescents with a range of physical and mental health problems. Research conducted in adults and emerging research conducted in adolescents has shown that mindfulness-based interventions can improve outcomes in several areas. The purpose of this review is to discuss recent research on the effects of mindfulness and suggest exercises that primary care clinicians can offer to their adolescent patients. Recent findings Research has shown positive ef...

CONCLUSION: Our results confirm that both FA and clinical level of binge eating are common problems in both overweight/obese patients seeking low-energy-diet therapy and in obese bariatric surgery candidates, justifying the clinical utility of assessing these dysfunctional eating patterns.

This study aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of the neural mechanisms by which LDX improves symptoms of BED. We hypothesise that LDX will act by normalising connectivity within neural circuits responsible for reward and impulse control, and that this normalisation will correlate with reduced binge eating episodes.MethodsThis is an open-label Phase 4 clinical trial of LDX in adults with moderate to severe BED. Enrolment will include 40 adults with moderate to severe BED aged 18 –40 years and Body Mass Index (BMI) of 20–45 kg/m2, and 22 healthy controls matched for age, gender and BMI. C...

Authors: Cuellar-Barboza AB, Winham SJ, Biernacka JM, Frye MA, McElroy SL Abstract INTRODUCTION: The clinical and genetic study of psychiatric conditions has underscored the co-occurrence of complex phenotypes and the need to refine them in entities that are more precise. Bipolar Disorder (BD) and Binge Eating (BE) behavior are common psychiatric conditions that have high heritability and high co-occurrence, such that at least one quarter of BD patients have BE (BD + BE). On the other hand, genetic studies of BD alone and of BE alone suggest complex polygenic risk models, with many genetic risk loci yet to be identifi...

ConclusionsAvoidance coping and depressive symptoms emerged as key variables in understanding recent disordered eating among patients considering bariatric surgery. Pre-surgical psychological evaluations and treatment approaches could be enhanced with consideration of patient coping strategies, particularly avoidant coping responses to stress, independent of psychological distress.

A recent report proposed that body image distortion (BID), a core symptom of AN, may relate to abnormalities of the serotonin system, especially the serotonin transporter (5HTT). Positron emission tomography (PET) studies of underweight patients with active AN reported alte...

This article provides a state-of-the-art review of our current understanding of the neurobiology of anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa. This includes brain structure and function studies to understand food restriction, binge-eating or purging behaviors, cognitive and emotional factors, as well as interoception. Binge-eating disorder and avoidant restrictive food intake disorder are also discussed, but the literature is still very small.

There are few systematic studies of treatment of bulimia nervosa (BN) in adolescents. Although family-based treatment has demonstrated preliminary evidence to support involvement of caregivers in treatment, there is significant opportunity for improvement in mitigating binge-eating and purging symptoms among adolescents afflicted with BN. When caregivers are unable to participate in treatment, there is evidence that BN-specific cognitive behavioral therapy approaches are helpful for some adolescents. Further research is needed to determine for whom, and under what conditions certain types of family involvement might be mos...

This study aimed to identify demographic and clinical predictors of response to Tele-CBT among 79 patients who received Tele-CBT in three previous studies. List-wise deletion was applied after which n=58 patients were included in a multivariate linear regression adjusted for age, sex, and education status, to evaluate patient rurality index (urban or non-urban), and baseline binge eating (BES), emotional eating (EES), and depression symptoms (PHQ-9), as predictors of tele-CBT response. The predictors explained 31% of the observed variance (R2=.312, F (4,57) =3.238, p
