Treatment of avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder in a cohort of young patients in a partial hospitalization program for eating disorders

DiscussionOur findings suggest that patients with ARFID can be successfully treated in the same PHP as patients with other ED, with comparable improvements in weight and psychopathology over a shorter time period. Results are limited to patients with ARFID who exhibit an acute onset of severe food restriction. Future research should incorporate measures relevant to the diagnosis of ARFID and explore how patients with different ARFID subtypes may respond to various treatments.

CONCLUSIONS: Anticipatory deactivation with a subsequent exaggerated brain response during and after an aversive body state may contribute to difficulty predicting and adapting to internal state fluctuation. Because eating changes our interoceptive state, restriction may be one method of avoiding aversive, unpredictable internal change in AN. PMID: 28714434 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: A focus on enhancing mentalization in eating disorder treatment might be useful to increase the chances of successful treatment. Improvement of autonomy might be the mechanism of change in recovering from AN or BN. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Level III cohort study. PMID: 28643289 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study aimed to assess the relationship between self‐disgust and sensory processing within eating psychopathology. Five hundred and ninety‐one women with a self‐reported diagnosis of anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa or who had no previous history of an eating disorder completed a battery of online questionnaires measuring disgust, emotion and sensory variables. Those with an eating disorder reported significantly higher rates of self‐disgust than those with no history of disordered eating. In groups of women with self‐reported bulimia, self‐disgust was associated with sensation avoidance and sensation seek...

In conclusion, our findings corroborate the hypothesis that the gut dysbiosis could take part in the AN neurobiology, in particular in sustaining the persistence of alterations that eventually result in relapses after renourishment and psychological therapy, but causality still needs to be proven.

In a workplace that glorifies strength and power, highly sensitive people like you may falsely assume the ability to experience things more intensely is a weakness or personal failing. On the contrary, you might be surprised to know that recent workplace performance research confirms what psychologists have known for years: managers consistently rate people with higher sensitivity as the best performers in their organizations. As our society becomes more automated, the need for workers with intuition, creativity and empathy becomes even greater. The abilities of sensitive people can never be reproduced by technology. They ...

Emotion recognition is disrupted in many mental health disorders, which may reflect shared genetic aetiology between this trait and these disorders. We explored genetic influences on emotion recognition and the relationship between these influences and mental health phenotypes. Eight‐year‐old participants (n = 4,097) from the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ALSPAC) completed the Diagnostic Analysis of Non‐Verbal Accuracy (DANVA) faces test. Genome‐wide genotype data was available from the Illumina HumanHap550 Quad microarray. Genome‐wide association studies were performed to assess ...

Authors: Jagielska G, Kacperska I Abstract Anorexia nervosa (AN) is a relatively common disorder, especially in adolescent and young adult women. The lifetime prevalence of AN in females ranges from 1.2 to 2.2%. The prevalence in males is 10-times lower. The condition is associated with a high risk of chronic course and poor prognosis in terms of treatment and the risk of death. Longer follow-up periods seemed to correspond with increased improvement rates and increased mortality. Onset of the disorder during adolescence is associated with better prognosis. It is reported that as much as 70% to over 80% of patients...

This article provides an updated and comprehensive overview of the empirical literature regarding Multiple Family Therapy (MFT)'s applications to major psychiatric disorders. It shows that MFT's strongest evidence base is for schizophrenia and chronic psychoses, making its psychoeducational model one of the best available practices for these disorders. There is also a growing body of evidence regarding the usefulness of MFT for mood disorders (particularly in children), eating disorders and alcohol‐substance abuse, but more controlled research is needed for these conditions. Other disorders such as anxiety disorders, aut...
