In-Person CBT More Effective Than Web-Based Guided Self-Help For Binge-Eating Disorder In Overweight Or Obese Adults

Reuters (8/2, Seaman) reports, “People should opt for face-to-face cognitive behavioral therapy [CBT] if they’re looking for the fastest way to address their binge eating disorder,” researchers concluded.

Healio (8/2, Oldt) reports, “In-person cognitive behavioral therapy [CBT] was more effective than internet-based guided self-help for binge-eating disorder in overweight or obese adults,” researchers found after conducting a “randomized clinical trial among 178 adult volunteers with full or subsyndromal binge-eating disorder from seven university-based outpatient clinics.” The findings were published online Aug. 2 in JAMA Psychiatry.
