Abstract and Keywords

This chapter provides a description and review of the research evidence for the adaptation of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and emotion-focused therapies for eating disorders (EDs). First, the chapter briefly describes the standard DBT program as originally developed for women with borderline personality disorder (BPD) and the evidence for standard DBT with BPD. Second, the rationale for the adaptation of DBT for EDs is given and preliminary evidence for DBT and other emotion-focused treatments is described. Finally, the Stanford DBT program for EDs is outlined. Given the promise of alternative treatments for eating disorders, further development, adaptation, and testing of transdiagnostic emotion regulation treatments is warranted.

Keywords: borderline personality disorder, dialectical behavior therapy, eating disorder, trial, evidence
