Latest research from the Journal of Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics

Comment: in a recent study published in the Journal of Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics it has been found out that dietary counselling is essential when dealing with obesity. Finding the emotional root of eating disorders, the study argued, can increase the effectiveness of the treatment of eating disorders, and combining psychotherapy with dietary counselling increases the chances of success.

 

The study examined 189 patients who had good results in hitting their allocated 5% weight loss target using the combined approach. The focus of this approach was binge eating in obese patients where there is a tendency for emotional pathology. In this type of pathology there can be occurrences of personality disorders and substance abuse.
