About the Course:

"Fear of food as a treatment target: Exposure and response prevention for anorexia nervosa in an open series"

Anorexia nervosa (AN) is a severe mental illness with high rates of relapse and rehospitalization. New treatment approaches are needed. We aimed to evaluate the potential utility of addressing eating-related fear in the treatment of AN using psychotherapy techniques known to be effective in the treatment of anxiety disorders and OCD, namely exposure therapy and response prevention.
