What is Group CBT-T?

While CBT-T was originally developed for individual delivery (whether in-person of online, there has been a lot of interest in whether it can be delivered in group form. Following pilot work at South Yorkshire Eating Disorders Association, Elana Moore has developed documents (below) to support the use of Group CBT-T.

The pilot project has now been presented as a conference paper (Elana Moore, BABCP, London 2022) and is in preparation as a paper. Details of that paper will be posted here when it has been accepted.

In short, the pilot study shows moderate patient uptake (c.50%), but very good retention and feasibility. The effectiveness of Group CBT-T is very promising, with moderate to large effect sizes in terms of eating attitudes, eating behaviours, and comorbidity.

The documents to support Group CBT-T are available here for download.

We hope that these materials will prove useful. We thank Elana Moore for allowing us to use her work in this way.
