Target Engagement of a Novel Dissonance-Based Treatment for DSM-5 Eating Disorders

ORI investigators are testing the effectiveness of a brief, low-cost group treatment program to treat a wide range of Eating Disorders (ED).

Only 3-20% of people with eating disorders (EDs) receive treatment, and they often do not receive evidence-based treatments because those programs are intensive and costly, and few clinicians deliver them. 

If this brief group treatment proves efficacious, it could be easily, inexpensively, and widely implemented, addressing a major public health problem because existing evidence-based ED treatments have not been implemented broadly.
