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

If you would like to learn more about the study, please contact the research coordinator, Jennifer Belus, via email ( or phone (919-307-6615).
