  • Reducing risk factors for eating disorders: Comparison of an Internet- and a classroom-delivered psychoeducational program JOURNAL OF CONSULTING AND CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY Celio, A. A., Winzelberg, A. J., Wilfley, D. E., Eppstein-Herald, D., SPRINGER, E. A., Dev, P., Taylor, C. B. 2000; 68 (4): 650-657


    This controlled trial compared Internet- (Student Bodies [SB]) and classroom-delivered (Body Traps [BT]) psychoeducational interventions for the reduction of body dissatisfaction and disordered eating behaviors/attitudes with a control condition. Participants were 76 women at a private university who were randomly assigned to SB, BT, or a wait-list control (WLC) condition. Measures of body image and eating attitudes and behaviors were measured at baseline, posttreatment, and 4-month follow-up. At posttreatment, participants in SB had significant reductions in weight/shape concerns and disordered eating attitudes compared with those in the WLC condition. At follow-up, disordered behaviors were also reduced. No significant effects were found between the BT and WLC conditions. An Internet-delivered intervention had a significant impact on reducing risk factors for eating disorders.
