Eating disorders continue to pose ongoing challenges to both researchers and clinicians alike, often demonstrating inadequate treatment outcomes and marked medical complications. However, a developing body of literature suggests that the treatment of eating disorders may be most effectively undertaken during adolescence. This chapter provides an overview of evidence-based treatment for adolescent eating disorders across the diagnostic spectrum, outlining both the practical application of these treatments and the supporting evidence base. Furthermore, it outlines the existing evidence pertaining to both moderators and mediators of treatment outcome in adolescent eating disorders. Though few controlled trials have systematically examined moderators and mediators in the context of eating disorders, emerging evidence suggests that this may be a highly promising line of research in augmenting treatment outcomes.
