Description

Summary

Do the current eating disorder treatments, i.e., Family-based Treatment (FBT) and Enhanced Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT-E), offered at the Center for the Treatment of Eating Disorders (CTED) demonstrate effectiveness? Specifically, which type of treatment is most effective for which diagnoses? Participants with Anorexia Nervosa (AN), Bulimia Nervosa (BN), Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorder (OSFED), or Unspecified Feeding or Eating Disorder (UFED) in this study will self select one of the two treatment groups, FBT or CBT-E. Additionally, does Family-based Treatment (FBT) modified for Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID) and Family-based Treatment (FBT) combined with the Unified Protocol (UP) for Transdiagnostic Treatment of Emotional Disorders (FBT+UP for ARFID) demonstrate effectiveness for patients with an Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID) diagnosis?

Details

Given a significant number of patients who presented for treatment at the Center for the Treatment of Eating Disorders (CTED) and were enrolled in this effectiveness study met criteria for a diagnosis of Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID), and because there are currently no randomized control trials systematically evaluating children/adolescents with ARFID, a secondary aim was added to this study.

The secondary aim will evaluate the preliminary effectiveness of two treatment groups including: Family-based Treatment (FBT) modified for ARFID and Family-based Treatment (FBT) combined with the Unified Protocol (UP) for Transdiagnostic Treatment of Emotional Disorders (FBT+UP for ARFID) for ARFID patients.
