When U.S. health officials began recommending that people stay at home in March, Allison Caswell didn’t expect doing so would trigger old anxieties about food that she struggled with daily in the past. For one thing, Caswell, a 29-year-old in Wilmington, North Carolina, had been in recovery for her eating disorder for 12 years.

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...

Authors: Brugnera A, Carlucci S, Compare A, Tasca GA Abstract Interpersonal problems play a prominent role in the development of binge-eating disorder (BED), so that reducing their intensity may be a key focus of many psychological interventions. In recent years, several interpersonal treatments for BED were developed, which posit that binge-eating arises to manage relational problems. However, few studies have evaluated the prototypical interpersonal problems, and no studies evaluated the longitudinal changes in interpersonal functioning after treatment within this population. We investigated the severity and prot...

Conclusions: The IMPULS study has a negative primary outcome. However, secondary outcomes indicate that the IMPULS treatment might be promising, as BE, eating pathology and depression were reduced in the IMPULS group. The initially reduced BE in the control group might represent a short-term effect from the self-observations. General impulsivity and BMI might need a longer time or more intensive treatment to change.Psychother Psychosom
