Specialist Supportive Clinical Management for anorexia nervosa: what it is (and what it is not).

CONCLUSIONS: SSCM utilises well established clinical management for AN (with a sustained focus on normalised eating and weight restoration) coupled with supportive therapy principles and strategies. Common factors across both arms include core counselling skills and a positive therapeutic alliance to promote adherence and retention in treatment for AN. Compared to other comparator therapies to date, SSCM is a simpler therapy without unique or novel theoretically derived strategies. Comparable outcomes with more complex psychotherapies raise the question of whether the combined core components of SSCM may be sufficient for many people with AN.

Abstract E-Therapies for Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa and Binge Eating Disorder Abstract. Eating disorders can often be treated with psychotherapy, but mostly due to a lack of trained clinicians, the majority of the persons concerned do not receive any treatment. In recent years, internet-based psychotherapy (e-therapy) was proposed and tested in several pilot projects as a novel possibility to offer a larger number of places on a treatment program with a constant number of available clinicians. Recent results are promising, but before an implementation into standard care can take place, more detailed knowled...

Perceptions of the "anorexic voice": A qualitative study of healthcare professionals. Clin Psychol Psychother. 2019 Aug 01;: Authors: Graham MR, Tierney S, Chisholm A, Fox JRE Abstract People with anorexia nervosa (AN) often report experiencing a highly critical inner voice (AV) focused on their eating, shape and weight.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based treatment for bulimia nervosa and binge-eating disorder and is regarded as the first-line treatment for both eating disorders. An enhanced version of the treatment (CBT-E) appears more effective in treating patients with severe comorbidity. There is less evidence that CBT is effective for the treatment of anorexia nervosa. Evidence suggests that CBT-E is no more effective than specialist care involving regular medical follow-up and supportive psychotherapy in the persistent adult form of anorexia nervosa (AN). Early studies suggest that CBT-E may be useful in treating...

Authors: Sakurai Y, Fujii A, Kato F Abstract Persistent idiopathic facial pain (PIFP) is a poorly understood chronic disorder that rarely occurs in children. An 11-year-old boy initially presented with right cheek pain and a streptococcal infection 6 weeks previously. Facial cellulitis was suspected, which was resolved by antibiotic treatment. The right cheek pain recurred within 4 weeks of this initial visit. Because the antibiotic treatment did not relieve the pain, the patient visited our outpatient clinic. Physical examination revealed facial tenderness in an area that corresponded with the region supplied by t...
