We are interested in studying two different psychological treatments for eating disorders for adolescents (ages 12-18). The study is designed to help adolescents who are having problems with binge eating and/or purging. The treatment consists of 14 sessions of approximately one-hour each over about three months.
Interested adolescents will have a phone screen and then come in for an in-person psychiatric evaluation. If eligible and interested, they will be randomly assigned to 4 months of outpatient treatment (free of charge) that is either 1) cognititve-behavioral therapy or 2) supportive psychotherapy.
