Eating disorders

This section is edited by Ulrich Voderholzer.

"Eating disorders are among the most common psychiatric disorders with especially high prevalence rates at the age between 15 and 19 years. Eating disorders - especially bulimia nervosa - are highly comorbid with borderline personality disorders. Dysfunctional emotion regulation has been identified as a core feature of eating disorders. Thus, during the last decades, understanding and treating emotion regulation difficulties has become a key issue in eating disorders research. A section on eating disorders within this journal is dedicated to research on a better understanding and treatment of dysfunctional emotion regulation in eating disorders."
