Binge eating disorder: the effectiveness of brief group treatment

This session will describe the B.E. Free 7- week treatment group for Binge Eating Disorder (BED). The presentation will cover the background, planning, implementation, and outcomes for the group. The group has been provided by Evolve – Hull Community Eating Disorder Service since 2015, and has been adapted to an online version during the pandemic.

I qualified as a registered mental health nurse in 2002 and have worked in acute and community adult mental health settings, where I developed a specialist interest in eating disorders. I have worked at Evolve – Hull Community Eating Disorder Service since it’s inception as an advice and consultation team and enjoyed playing an active role in developing the service to provide evidence-based day service and outpatient treatment programmes for adults. I developed the ‘B.E. Free’ binge eating disorder treatment group.
