Call for papers: Eating Disorders, Emotions and Mood Disorders

New Content ItemCentral to an eating disorder are people’s emotions and emotional responses to eating, food and body, and high rates of anxiety and mood disorders are known. However, diagnostic conceptualisations and treatment may often focus on behaviours and  cognitions  to the neglect of mood states and concurrent illness. We call for papers for this Special Issue that further understanding of the relationships between mood states or specific disorders and the aetiology, assessment, diagnosis, management or outcomes for people with eating disorders. Papers that explore novel approaches to the management of emotion dysregulation as well as specific mood disorders as experienced by those with eating disorders will be particularly encouraged.
