Other research on eating disorders

Research in Oxford

CREDO is engaged in one other Oxford-based line of eating disorder research, which overlaps with the work taking place under the aegis of the Centre for Research on Dissemination at Oxford. It is on the development and testing of a new and scalable method for training therapists in transdiagnostic CBT for eating disorders (CBT-E).This work includes work developing measures of therapist competence at implementing CBT-E.
