Abstract

Throughout this book we have highlighted the reasons why CRT for eating disorders (EDs) was developed, including a lack of treatment choices, poor patient engagement in existing psychological therapies and cognitive ineffi ciencies (Chapters 1, 6 and 7). We have also shown how CRT is used in the fi eld of EDs in both individual (Chapters 2, 3, 5, 6, 7 and 8) and group formats (4, 9). We have described CRT for different age groups (Chapters 7, 8 and 9 focus on young people whilst the remaining chapters address CRT with adults), and we have discussed ways to report outcomes across the chapters. Overall, this book has aimed to present the latest research in this area. This fi nal chapter aims to appraise the evidence available to date.
