Eating disorders and obesity are associated with marked impairment and reduced quality of life. Effective interventions have been identified and developed for youth and young adults. In this chapter, evidence-based treatment studies for bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, and obesity are reviewed, and implications of the findings for treating children, adolescents, and young adults are discussed. A socioecological intervention using a contextual learning approach is described as optimal for promoting sustainable changes in eating-related attitudes and weight-related behaviors.
