It’s Good You’re Here…

Someone you know is battling an eating disorder. It could be your mother, father, daughter, son, neighbor, friend, colleague. Or you. Nearly 10 million women and one million men in the United States suffer from anorexia and bulimia; many millions more from binge eating disorder, disordered eating, body dissatisfaction, and weight concerns.

You may be unaware of the personal yet profound struggle that haunts these individuals daily. On the outside they may appear successful, happy and leading a rewarding life. But as the cliché admonishes, looks can be deceiving. Early detection, intervention and treatment are essential for successful treatment and full recovery. EDRC is here to help guide you and your loved ones through the recovery process.

Stanford University Eating Disorder Program Recruiting Participants for New Studies

Stanford University’s Eating Disorder Program is currently recruiting eligible participants for the following two studies:

Confirming the Efficacy/Mechanism of an Adaptive Treatment for Adolescent Anorexia Nervosa

Stanford University and UCSF’s Eating Disorder Programs are recruiting adolescents ages 12 to 18 with a diagnosis of Anorexia Nervosa (AN) and their families to participate in a Family Based Treatment research study. By participating in this study participants receive FBT, an evidence-based treatment, free of charge and $50 upon completion of the study for the adolescent. The study entails of 15-18 sessions of FBT over a 9 month period with a follow-up occurring at both 6 months and 1 year post treatment. Everyone in the study gets FBT from trained psychologists starting immediately following enrollment. This study aims to confirm whether adding an adaptive treatment (a 3-session Intensive Parental Coaching-IPC Intervention) compatible with FBT significantly improves outcomes by addressing poor early response and to evaluate effect of treatment in those adolescents who do not show an early response to FBT.

If you or someone you know are interested in the study and/or would like to hear more about it please email Alexa L’Insalata at familytreatment@stanford.edu or call 650-723-9182.

The Interactions Between Clinical and Neurocognitve Symptoms in Adolescents With Eating Disorders

Stanford University’s Eating Disorder Program is recruiting females between the ages of 12 to 18 with a diagnosis of Anorexia Nervosa Restricting subtype (AN-R) who either are currently underweight or have been underweight in the last 3 months to participate in a study looking at the interactions between clinical and neurocognitve symptoms in adolescents with eating disorders. The study is a one time visit (at 401 Quarry Road Stanford, CA 94305), in which the participant will play a few computer games (3 total), complete a vocabulary task, complete a pattern matching task, and answer an online questionnaire (will be completed at home prior to coming in) that in total will take about 2 hours and each participant gets $50 for participating.

If you fit the criteria for this study and are interested in being in a paid research study, please reach out! To inquire further please email Alexa L’Insalata at alinsalata@stanford.edu or call 650-723-9182.
