Patients with an eating disorder have difficulties perceiving emotions. They have skills deficits in the acceptance, modification and opposite action to emotion driven behavior. They use disturbed eating behavior (restrained eating, binge eating and purging), but also situational avoidance, dissociation and substance use as an instrument for emotional avoidance. This constitutes an innovative starting point for therapy.
