Senior Research Tutor, Dr Myra Cooper, and former Oxford trainee, Dr Hannah Kelland, have just published this paper in the Journal of Eating Disorders, an open source journal, freely available to all. The paper investigates the use of different psychotherapies and psychotropic medication in people with a range of different eating disorders. Participants had relatively severe symptoms and chronic disorders, most were currently receiving either psychotherapy, medication or both.  Unlike use of medication, the use of psychotherapy showed some congruence with evidence-based and other guidance. The authors conclude that the development of theory and novel treatments should be considered a priority for this group of people. The paper was based on data collected by Dr Kelland in the course of conducting her DClinPsych dissertation, and Dr Cooper took a lead on analysing and writing the paper.
