THEMATIC SERIES: Raising the bar in the treatment of over-exercise in people with AN

Exercise is the neglected “Cinderella” of eating disorder phenomenology but is an important determinant of outcomes and its restriction in treatments often strongly resisted and poorly understood. There is a need for more research to improve understanding of its assessment and treatment. This call is for papers on all aspects of compulsive exercise in eating disorders  and especially those that address its management.
