Using ERP in the Treatment of Loss of Control Eating – Laura Lange

For those who suffer from an eating disorder, a technique called Exposure Response Prevention may help. Combing this technique, which is often used to treat anxiety disorders, with cognitive behavioral therapy can be the cure many are looking for in their fight to combat binge eating and other food related disorders.

Key Takeaways:

  • Tim shared with us, “ERP was a real confidence boost; it was basically proving to myself that I can do it. Because of that, I haven’t binged or punished myself with food since treatment.”
  • Historically, Exposure and Response Prevention has been most frequently employed in anxiety disorder and substance use disorder treatment.
  • However, there is strong evidence that it is a powerful addition to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for eating disorders.

“ERP is most typically used to treat anxiety disorders but has been proven to be successful in treating eating disorders as well.”
