Eating Disorders and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Metrics details. Clinicians routinely report not practising evidence-based treatments with eating disorders. There has been limited research investigating the impact of adaptable clinician characteristics such as self-efficacy and therapeutic optimism in this area. This study evaluated if there is a relationship between clinician therapeutic optimism, self-efficacy and the provision of evidence-based practice in the treatment of bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder. The survey measured demographic factors, eating disorder treatment knowledge, treatment fidelity, the use of individual treatment components and a range of clinician characteristics including self-efficacy and therapeutic optimism.
Journal of Eating Disorders. December , Cite as. CBT-E has been evaluated empirically in outpatient populations in four randomized controlled trials[ 4 , 5 , 6 , 7 ] and in three community-based effectiveness trials[ 8 , 9 , 10 , 11 ]. CBT-E has also recently been evaluated in a randomized controlled trial of inpatient treatment for anorexia nervosa[ 9 , 10 ]. The results of these trials have provided evidence that CBT-E is well accepted by patients, even those who are severely underweight, and is highly effective for patients with all forms of eating disorders in a range of clinical settings. Dr Dalle Grave has worked closely with Professor Fairburn and is well known for the contribution he has made to the theory and treatment of eating disorders over the past two decades.
