About the Course:
Research into psychotherapy for binge-eating disorder (BED) has focused mainly on cognitive behavioural therapies, but efficacy, failure to abstain, and dropout rates continue to be problematic. The experience of negative emotions is among the most accurate predictors for the occurrence of binge eating episodes in BED, suggesting benefits to exploring psychological treatments with a more specific focus on the role of emotion. The present study aimed to explore the feasibility of individual emotion-focused therapy (EFT) as a treatment for BED by examining the outcomes of a pilot randomised wait-list controlled trial.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, The Feasibility of Emotion-Focused Therapy for Binge-Eating Disorder: A Pilot Randomised Wait-List Control Trial created by Kevin Glisenti, Ph.D. , Esben Strodl, Ph.D. , Robert King, Ph.D., and Leslie Greenberg, Ph.D. in 2021.
