Development of the CBT-E Components Checklist: A tool for measuring therapist self-rated adherence to CBT-E
Few tools to encourage therapists to implement evidence based psychological treatments as designed exist. Assessing therapist “competence” (implementing therapeutic procedures well) by evaluating the quality of their treatment sessions is problematic for multiple reasons.

Cognitive behaviour therapy for adolescents with eating disorders: An effective alternative to the disease-based treatments
Several clinical services offer eclectic multidisciplinary treatments with no evidence of efficacy and effectiveness for adolescents with eating disorders. These treatments are usually based on the ‘disease model’ of eating disorders. The model postulates that eating disorders are the result of a specific disease (i.e., anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa or other eating disorders), and patients are considered not to have control of their illness.

Evaluating renal function and defining protein requirements in patients affected by anorexia nervosa: a case report
Anorexia Nervosa (AN) is associated with high somatic comorbidities. Among them, impaired renal function is frequently overlooked by physicians. Since a high rate of individuals affected by AN may become chronically ill, assessing renal function is crucial to prevent further deterioration of the kidney-related condition.
