BACKGROUND Anorexia nervosa (AN), bulimia nervosa (BN), binge eating disorder (BED) and eating disorder not otherwise specified (EDNOS) are common and disabling disorders. Many patients experience difficulties accessing specialist psychological treatments. Pure self-help (PSH: self-help material only) or guided self-help (GSH: self-help material with therapist guidance), may bridge this gap. OBJECTIVES MAIN OBJECTIVE Evaluate evidence from randomised controlled trials (RCTs) / controlled… 
Guided self-help for disordered eating: A randomised control trial.
TLDR
The current randomised control trial evaluated a cognitive behavioural therapy-based GSH pack, 'Working to Overcome Eating Difficulties,' delivered by trained mental health professionals in 6 sessions over 3 months, showing significant improvements in eating disorder psychopathology, laxative abuse, exercise behaviours, and global distress.
Guided Self‐help for Eating Disorders: A Systematic Review and Metaregression
TLDR
There was strong evidence for an association between diagnosis of binge eating disorder and binge abstinence, and current interventions need to be adapted to address features other than binge eating.
Guided self-help for binge eating/purging anorexia nervosa before inpatient treatment
TLDR
It is concluded that, to increase effects of therapist-guided self- help in AN-B/P, additional variants of a self-help manual should be tried in different therapeutic settings.
Psychological treatments for bulimia nervosa and binging.
TLDR
The efficacy of CBT and particularly CBT-BN in the treatment of people with bulimia nervosa and also related eating disorder syndromes was supported, and other psychotherapies were also efficacious, particularly interpersonal psychotherapy in the longer-term.
Cognitive behavioral guided self-help for the treatment of recurrent binge eating.
TLDR
CBT-GSH is a viable first-line treatment option for the majority of patients with recurrent binge eating who do not meet diagnostic criteria for BN or anorexia nervosa and results in greater abstinence from binge eating than TAU at 12-month follow-up.
Treatment of bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder
Abstract Bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder are complex eating disorders with a major impact on the life of the patient and that of their family. Over the past two decades, increasing
Self-Help And Recovery guide for Eating Disorders (SHARED): study protocol for a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
Results from this exploratory investigation will determine whether a larger clinical trial is justifiable and feasible for this affordable intervention, which has potential for high reach and scalability.
Treating eating disorders in primary care.
TLDR
Good evidence supports the use of interpersonal and cognitive behavior therapies, as well as antidepressants in the treatment of binge-eating disorder and bulimia nervosa, and for patients with anorexia nervosa.
Participation and outcome in manualized self-help for bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder - a systematic review and metaregression analysis.
TLDR
Self-help interventions have a place in the treatment of BN and BED, especially if the features of their delivery and indications are considered carefully and the use of consistent terminology as well as uniform standards for reporting adherence and participation in future self-help trials is recommended.

Psychotherapy for bulimia nervosa and binging.
TLDR
The efficacy of cognitive-behavioural psychotherapy (CBT) and particularly CBT-BN in the treatment of people with bulimia nervosa was supported and other psychotherapies were also efficacious, particularly interpersonal psychotherapy in the longer-term.
Guided self-help versus cognitive-behavioral group therapy in the treatment of bulimia nervosa.
TLDR
Guided self- help incorporating the use of a self-help manual offers an approach that can be effective in the short and long-term treatment of bulimia nervosa.
Self-help for bulimia nervosa: a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
The findings suggest that a subgroup of patients with bulimia nervosa may benefit from unguided self-help as a first step in their treatment, and Cognitive behavior self- Help and nonspecific self- help had equivalent effects.
Guided and unguided self-help for binge eating.
TLDR
Patients improved their eating behavior, eliminated any inappropriate compensatory behaviors, reduced their shape concern, weight concern, and other symptoms of eating-related psychopathology, and improved their general psychological functioning.
Guided self-help for bulimia nervosa in primary care: a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
Outcomes following Guided Self-Help (GSH) delivered by general practitioners in the normal course of their practice to a delayed treatment control (DTC) condition compare favourably with those of specialist-delivered psychological treatments.
Cognitive-behavioral self-help for binge eating disorder: a controlled effectiveness study.
TLDR
Both PSH and GSH had a substantial and sustained impact with almost half the participants ceasing to binge eat and cognitive-behavioral self-help may be of value both as an initial treatment for binge eating disorder and as a form of secondary prevention.
A case series evaluation of guided self-help for bulimia nervosa using a cognitive manual.
TLDR
Guided self-help using cognitive techniques is a promising first-line treatment for bulimia nervosa, with further evaluation required in a randomized, controlled trial with long-term follow-up.
Self-help for bulimic disorders: A randomised controlled trial comparing minimal guidance with face-to-face or telephone guidance
TLDR
Guided self-help is a worthwhile initial response to bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder and is a treatment that could be delivered in primary care and in other non-specialist settings.
Guided self-change for bulimia nervosa incorporating use of a self-care manual.
TLDR
Guided self-change incorporating use of a self-care manual offers an approach that can be as effective as standard cognitive behavior therapy in the long term and can considerably reduce the amount of therapist contact required.
