Call For Papers: Mindful Journeys: A Careful Exploration of Psychedelics in Eating Disorder Treatment

In a recent Journal of Eating Disorders editorial, Touyz and Hay (2022)  emphasized the need for innovative approaches in treating eating disorders, particularly anorexia nervosa (AN), which maintains a high mortality rate. Existing therapies benefit many, but up to 40% of individuals with AN remain ill after 20 years. Psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy, with its reported therapeutic potential and impact on cognitive flexibility, is being considered as a next step in trials for AN treatment in several countries, including in the USA, Canada, UK, and Australia. The Collection Mindful Journeys: A Careful Exploration of Psychedelics in Eating Disorder Treatment will be devoted to this new frontier in better understanding the potential role of psychedelics in the treatment of eating disorders.
This Collection welcomes submission of case reports, commentaries, original research, reviews, and study protocols.

Guest Editors: Dr. Aaron Keshen and Editors-in-Chief Prof. Stephen Touyz and Prof. Phillipa Hay.

Submission deadline: 30 September 2024
