The thesis explores developments in the treatment of eating disorders (EDs) and the experiences of men living with an ED. The first chapter is a systematic review of a transdiagnostic cognitive behavioural model of treatment for EDs (CBT–E). Following database searches 15 studies were included for review. Results highlight that CBT-E appears to be an effective treatment option, with an indication that results transfer to clinical settings. Strengths and limitations of the included studies are discussed and implications for practice are considered. Areas for further study are recommended. The second chapter is a qualitative study investigating men’s experiences of developing and living with an ED. Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA) was employed to facilitate an in-depth exploration into participants’ experiences. The ED taking control; the ED consuming their life; the conflict between letting go and holding onto the ED; and questioning of masculine identity were themes which emerged from participants lived experiences. Implications for clinical practice and directions for future research are highlighted. The third chapter presents a reflective account of undertaking the research project. Parallels between the experiences of participants and the researchers own experiences as a man are considered.
