As a psychological research and training clinic, the Temple Eating Disorders (TED) program at Temple University specializes in difficult-to-treat eating problems. We research various empirically validated out-patient treatments and conduct comprehensive psychological assessments for adults (18 and older) with a range of eating and weight disorders, including Anorexia Nervosa, Binge-Eating Disorder, and Bulimia Nervosa.
Our clinical mission and research goals are to develop treatment for these individuals by utilizing psychosocial treatments, such as Cognitive-Behavior Therapy, Family-Based Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Mindfulness-Based Therapies.
Moreover, our teaching mission is to train therapists in the administration of these treatments to individuals with eating and weight disorders and to train assessors in the assessment of such problems.
All treatments are provided free of charge to eligible study participants. More information about study participation can be found on the “Current Studies” page.
