    The University of Louisville Eating Anxiety Treatment (EAT) Lab is looking for participants to join our NIMH-funded project comparing online relapse prevention treatments for eating disorders (please see flyer attached).

    The study includes individuals diagnosed with AN, BN, or Atypical-AN and have been discharged from intensive eating disorder treatment in the past four months. Participants will be asked to complete an eligibility screening over the phone, online questionnaires, app based behavioral task, and five sessions of relapse prevention treatment. Following treatment, participants will be asked to complete follow-ups at post-intervention, and at 6, 12, and 18 months. Participants can receive up to a $200 gift card for completing the study.

    Participation can be done entirely virtually and participants are able to continue with treatment at lower levels of care post discharge during participation. We also monitor for clinical deterioration and can cater to participants who need to return to a higher level of care.

    For more information, email or check out our website We will be recruiting until Ausgust 2023.

    We would greatly appreciate if you would be willing to share this information with your colleagues and/or eating disorder patients who have recently been discharged from intensive treatment and may be eligible for the study.
