Management and Outcomes of Binge-Eating Disorders
This course is based upon material published in the Effective Health Care Program and is available as an open-access article.
This review addresses the efficacy and effectiveness of interventions for individuals meeting DSM-IV or DSM-5 criteria for BED, for post-bariatric surgery patients with LOC eating, and for children with LOC eating. (Hereafter, the term “effectiveness” refers to both efficacy and effectiveness, including comparative effectiveness.) We also attempted to examine whether treatment effectiveness differed in subgroups based on sex, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, body mass index (BMI), duration of illness, or coexisting conditions. Broadly, we included pharmacological, psychological, behavioral, and combination interventions. We considered physical and psychological health outcomes in four major categories: (1) binge behavior (binge eating or LOC eating); (2) binge-eating–related psychopathology (e.g., weight and shape concerns, dietary restraint); (3) physical health functioning (i.e., weight and other indexes of metabolic health—e.g., diabetes); and (4) general psychopathology (e.g., depression, anxiety). Additional outcomes of interest included social and occupational functioning and harms of treatment. We also examined the course of illness of BED and of LOC eating, particularly given their relatively high comorbidity with other medical and psychiatric conditions. In addition, clinical interest in understanding whether LOC eating reliably predicts poorer weight outcomes and new-onset BED over time is considerable. Little is known about the temporal stability of BED in the community generally, and of LOC in post-bariatric surgery patients and children specifically. Ultimately, the information produced in this review is intended to contribute to improved care for patients, better decision-making capacity for clinicians, and more sophisticated policies from those responsible for establishing treatment guidelines or making various insurance and related decisions.
This course on the efficacy of different interventions on binge eating disorder. is designed for social workers, professional counselors, psychologists, nurses, and substance abuse counselors, who do clinical work. This course is appropriate for intermediate and advanced level practitioners who wish to develop their understanding of the efficacy of different interventions on binge eating disorder The course material includes a literature review of interventions. It may also be useful for licensed clinicians who require clinical continuing education courses for license renewal.
The course is based on a journal article which includes research. It contains statistical analysis and data that some clinicians enjoy reading and others do not. A major benefit of reading research based articles for continuing education is they provide practitioners with the latest findings in their field.
