AMBR and eating disorders

The Attunement in Mind, Body and Relationships (AMBR) programme uses cognitive behaviour therapy, dialectical behaviour therapy and innovative methods such as interactive discourse, meditation and yoga to treat eating disorders. A small-scale six-eight week study into the effectiveness of the AMBR programme found that it reduced participants' desire to be thinner, concern with dieting, fear of gaining weight and body dissatisfaction.
