Are You Struggling With Excess Weight Or Binge Eating?
Previous research has shown that at least 40% of individuals with the eating
disorders of binge eating disorder or bulimia nervosa carry excess weight.
However, most psychological treatments for eating disorders, such as Cognitive
Behavioural Therapy (CBT), do not address weight loss as part of the treatment.
In addition, most weight loss therapies do not provide psychological treatment
for eating disorders.
HAPIFED, which stands for a Healthy Approach to weIght management and
Food in Eating Disorders,is a novel therapy which aims to bridge these gaps in
currently available treatments by including both behavioural weight loss therapy
to address the excess weight, and a psychological component called ‘enhanced
cognitive behavioural therapy’ to treat the eating disorder.
HAPIFED therapy will be conducted in groups of up to 12 individuals. The therapy
sessions will be conducted on a weekly basis over a 10 week period, and in the near future there will be a 30 week course available as well. Each session
will last for approximately 90 minutes.
