Part 1 of the thesis is a systematic literature review on the relationship between childhood emotional abuse and emotional neglect and Eating Disorders. The literature review also aimed to highlight factors that may be associated with this relationship. In addition it aimed to evaluate whether people diagnosed with an ED and who have a history of childhood emotional abuse show more severe symptoms and comorbidity. Part 2 of the thesis is an empirical study investigating whether a 12 week Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) skills group is associated with improvements in mindfulness and acceptance. It also examined whether improvements in mindfulness and acceptance were associated with improvements in binge eating, and eating pathology in general. The study utilised a multiple single case design to analyse the data.
