Associations between eating disorder related symptoms and participants ’ utilization of an individualized Internet‐based prevention and early intervention program
DiscussionResults indicate that program utilization is associated with ED‐related symptoms between‐ as well as within‐persons. The individualized, flexible approach of ProYouth thus seems to be a promising way for Internet‐based provision of combined prevention and early intervention programs addressing ED.

Symptom trajectories throughout two family therapy treatments for adolescent anorexia nervosa
This study aimed to examine the trajectory of symptom remission and affective functioning throughout the course of two family‐based treatments for adolescent anorexia nervosa (AN): conjoint family‐based treatment (FBT) and parent‐focused treatment (PFT). MethodParticipants were 107 adolescents (Mage = 15.5 years, SD = 1.5) with a primary diagnosis of AN who participated in a randomized clinical trial comparing FBT (N = 55) and PFT (N = 51). Patient weight and self‐reported assessments of dietary restraint and positive and negative affect were recorded at regul...

Cognitive –behavioral therapy for eating disorders in primary care settings: Does it work, and does a greater dose make it more effective?
This study aimed to determine whether cognitive–behavioral therapy (CBT) for eating disorders can be effective in a routine, primary care clinical setting, and to assess dose response. MethodThe participants were 47 patients who commenced treatment with a publicly‐funded primary care eating disorder service. They attended 7–33 sessions of individual CBT (mean = 17), using an evidence‐based approach. Routine measures were collected pre‐ and post‐therapy. ResultsThree‐quarters of the patients completed treatment. Using intention to treat analysis (multiple imputation), the patients showed ...

The impact of DSM ‐5 on the diagnosis and severity indicator of eating disorders in a treatment‐seeking sample
DiscussionThe DSM‐5 effectively reduced the reliance on residual categories and differentiated the diagnostic groups in eating disorder psychopathology. However, our findings show limited support for the DSM‐5 severity specifiers for eating disorders. It is necessary to test additional clinical or functional variables for severity specifiers across eating disorders. (Source: International Journal of Eating Disorders)

Gender differences in disordered eating behaviors and body dissatisfaction among adolescents with type 1 diabetes: Results from diabetes MILES youth —Australia

Sudden gains in the outpatient treatment of anorexia nervosa: A process ‐outcome study
This study investigated whether SGs were associated with changes in BMI, eating disorder symptomology, general psychopathology, and psychosocial impairment between baseline and 6, 12, and 24 months follow‐up. ResultsSGs, experienced by 61.8% of patients, mostly occurred during the early and middle phases of treatment. A larger proportion of SGs predicted larger increases in BMI between baseline and 6, 12, and 24 months follow‐up. Amongst those experiencing at least one SG, fewer days between baseline and a patient's first SG predicted a larger increase in BMI between baseline and both 6 and 12 months follow‐up. The p...

This study examined whether rapid change in emotion regulation predicted treatment outcomes, beyond the effects of RSBC. MethodParticipants were diagnosed with bulimia nervosa or purging disorder (N = 104) and completed ≥6 weeks of CBT‐based intensive treatment. Hierarchical regression models were used to test whether rapid change in emotion regulation variables predicted posttreatment outcomes, defined in three ways: (1) binge/purge abstinence; (2) cognitive eating disorder psychopathology; and (3) depression symptoms. Baseline psychopathology and emotion regulation difficulties and RSBC were controlled...

Expanding exposure ‐based interventions for eating disorders
This article provides a brief summary of relevant advances in exposure therapy for anxiety and outlines how these advances may be adapted and evaluated for use with ED samples. More specifically, we propose shifting to an inhibitory learning framework, considering treatment targets other than fear, and increasing variability in exposure techniques represent three important areas for future study. Overall, this article aims to provide professionals in the field with a framework for how to incorporate cutting‐edge advances in exposure therapy into rigorous intervention research for EDs.

Virtual reality jogging as a novel exposure paradigm for the acute urge to be physically active in patients with eating disorders: Implications for treatment
In this study with n = 20 female patients with anorexia nervosa and n = 10 female patients with bulimia nervosa, a virtual reality (VR) jogging paradigm was applied as a novel highly immersive 3‐D exposure paradigm. Patients were asked to rate their acute urge to be physically active during the exposure procedure. A 10‐item self‐report questionnaire (smQ) was developed to capture the cognitive, emotional, and behavioral aspects of the acute urge to move. We hypothesized that exposure would lead to habituation of the urge to be physically active. We also hypothesized that leptin levels woul...

A translational neuroscience approach to body image disturbance and its remediation in anorexia nervosa
Abstract Deviant perception of the body is a fundamental component of anorexia nervosa. Here we offer a potential mechanistic explanation that involves perturbations within the visual system and the brain circuits that modulate perceptual organization. Based on the model proposed, we also suggest a mechanistic strategy for altering neuronal activity in the visual system to normalize perception of the body, and set out a strategy for empirically testing its clinical application.
