The UNC Center of Excellence for Eating Disorders (UNC-CEED) is currently piloting a couple-based intervention for binge-eating disorder (BED). Eligible couples can receive 22 weeks of cognitive-behavioral couple therapy from the UNC-CEED team at NO COST as an adjunct to their individual therapy. Participants will also receive payment of $50 for participating in assessments.
If you are an adult, have been in a committed relationship for at least 6 months, and are currently struggling with BED or have a partner who currently has BED, you may be eligible.
How do you know if you or your partner might have BED? Here are some signs:
• Eating feels out of control (for example, once you start eating you can’t seem to stop)
• Eating large amounts of food when not feeling physically hungry
• Feeling guilty, ashamed, or distressed after eating
• Eating in secret
• Eating large quantities of food in a short period of time
