Session 12A: Internet-Based Interventions for the Prevention and Treatment of Eating Disorders and Obesity

This symposium brings together scientist-practitioners who are enthusiastic about using technology in interventions across the mental health intervention spectrum to prevent and treat eating disorders, promote healthy weight maintenance and loss as appropriate, and promote maintenance of treatment gains. Body dissatisfaction, disordered eating, eating disorders and obesity are highly prevalent and result in significant burden for individuals and society, highlighting the need for effective and widely disseminable interventions. Researchers from Stanford University, Washington University in St. Louis, and Technische Universität Dresden have been collaborating for the past 20 years to develop and evaluate online programs and universal/tailored interventions in the fields of eating disorder and obesity prevention, early intervention, treatment, and aftercare and to improve their accessibility and dissemination. As a result, the workgroups have succeeded in establishing a comprehensive programmatic line of research, developed ways to identify risk and high-risk populations for eating disorders, and developed and evaluated the efficacy of a variety of universal, targeted and indicated online prevention, treatment and aftercare programs for healthy weight regulation, eating disorders and obesity which are currently being widely disseminated both in the US and in Germany. In the symposium, they will share their latest findings and introduce ongoing research projects.
