Enhancing treatment for binge-eating disorder with a couple-based approach

Research project

Description

We propose an open pilot intervention of UNITE with 10 couples in which one member has BED. We will measure treatment feasibility, acceptability (patient and partner), and preliminary efficacy (e.g. changes in binge eating episode frequency, depression, anxiety, and relationship functioning). We hypothesize that the treatment will be feasible, that both patients and partners will rate it as acceptable, and that we will see improvements in eating disorder related outcomes and relationship functioning.
