Eating disorders build themselves on perceived feelings of control. Yet, as we find ourselves in the midst of unprecedented and uncertain times, with the coronavirus pandemic, how do those with eating disorders manage? As an individual with an eating disorder, I struggle with the Christmas season, mostly as my ‘safe’ foods are suddenly superseded with aisles of turkeys and potatoes and normal life grinds to a halt for a day as shops close and families and friends gather at home. Coronavirus feels like this, but every single day and on a much bigger scale.  Food aisles are being stripped bare by panic ...

CONCLUSIONS: It is necessary to understand the physiological role of FC and also consider the significance of each food in an individual eating context (eating attitudes) and whether it is treated like a "drug" or just as a desired tasty food and future studies should verify possible neural changes involved in FC after nutritional treatment.

Abstract Despite the effectiveness of CBT in reducing shape/weight concerns and dietary restraint, research suggests that patients considered recovered may still exhibit emotional difficulties related to eating disorders (EDs). Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) has been adapted for a variety of mental disorders characterized by emotion dysregulation and, more recently, for EDs specifically. The current review found that the majority of the research studies employed one of the following three adaptations of DBT for EDs: The Stanford Model, Radically Open-DBT (RO-DBT), or Multidiagnostic ED-DBT (MED-DBT). Therefore...

This article discusses the concept of intuitive eating, where no food is off limits, and how it dramatically changed the life of Harriet, a woman with PCOS who has struggled with obesity since childhood. We Tell Suicidal People to Go to Therapy. So Why Are Therapists Rarely Trained in Suicide?: Suicide is the nation’s 10th leading cause of death, yet training for mental health practitioners who treat suicidal patients — psychologists, social workers, marriage and family therapists, among others — is dangerously inadequate, says the author. This article thoroughly probes this topic and explores what can be...

CONCLUSIONS: Epidemiology of ED patients in treatment in Flanders (Belgium) seems to resemble worldwide findings. The long duration of illness, the common evolution towards chronicity and the early work impairment underline the severe personal and societal impact of ED and call to the need for early detection and treatment of these patients. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Level V: cross-sectional descriptive study. PMID: 32080821 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This article includes references to self-injury, intravenous drug use and disordered eating.* One in five US high school students have reported being bullied. Approximately 160,000 teenagers have skipped school as a preventative measure. I encountered bullies for the first time in second grade, in the midst of such an innocent time of my youth. I dreaded entering my elementary school classroom, as I was well aware of what my presence would entail. I endured both verbal and physical harassment from my fellow peers for nearly a decade. I was passive, inevitably leading to the acceptance of my “fate,” in addition ...

At first, Melanie Murphy was just following doctor’s orders. Murphy, then 19, had gained weight during a period of depression, and her doctor told her she should lose some. She went from 180 to 125 pounds in 18 months—and even when she knew it was time to stop slimming down, she couldn’t shake the need to chase a goal. Without weight loss, she needed a new target. That became finding the “perfect” diet, one that was clean and pure and would keep her healthy for years to come. At least, that was how she thought about it then. These days, she uses a different descriptor: “orthorexia,&rdquo...

In Reply We thank King and Ehrlich for their thoughtful Letter critiquing our meta-analysis that examined delay discounting as a transdiagnostic process in psychiatric disorders. In our article, we proposed that delay discounting, an index of impulsive decision-making, falls on a continuum. At the aggregate level, most disorders examined (eg, major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, borderline personality disorder, binge-eating disorder, and bulimia nervosa) exhibited steeper, more impulsive, delay discounting compared with controls, whereas people with anorexia nervosa exhibited shallower, less impulsiv...

To the Editor Amlung and colleagues published a meta-analysis of delay discounting (DD), a behavioral measure of impulsivity and self-control, including 57 effect sizes from 43 studies across 8 psychiatric diagnostic categories. Results indicated a greater preference for smaller immediate monetary rewards (ie, more impulsive decision-making) in 6 conditions (major depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, bulimia nervosa, and binge-eating disorder) compared with controls but greater preference for larger delayed rewards (ie, more self-controlled choice) in anorexia nervosa. The findings ...
