Eating disorders are severe mental illnesses, mainly affecting adolescent- and young adult women. The prognoses for eating disorders are relatively poor, and a large part of patients with these illnesses do not benefit from available conventional therapies. After decades of research into the causes of eating disorders, there is now compelling evidence for specific neuropsychological difficulties in patients affected by eating disorders. These neuropsychological difficulties are characterized by cognitive and behavioral rigidity (poor set-shifting abilities), as well as difficulties related to central coherence, planning and impulse control. Surprisingly, few therapies specifically target these difficulties, and they are rarely incorporated into treatment. Cognitive Remediation Therapy has shown promising results as an adjunctive therapeutic intervention for patients with anorexia Nervosa. The primary aim of this randomized controlled trial is thus to investigate the effect of Cognitive Remediation Therapy on neuropsychological function, symptoms of eating disorders and general mental health, quality of life and motor activity in women with both eating disorders (transdiagnostic) and these specific cognitive difficulties.
