There is a vast amount of literature concluding that some fo1m of emotional distress . precedes binge-eating episodes. Such evidence makes accountable this current research - to design and implement a psychoeducational group programme to teach emotional discrimination and management for women with binge eating disorder. Three women participated in the programme, with three women used as a control group. The programme consisted of eight sessions run over six weeks and involved monitoring, learning how to better recognize emotions and learning techniques to manage emotions through relaxation techniques, problem solving skills, self regulation writing and assertion training. Results showed some positive changes on the Eating Disorder Inventory-2, the Emotional Eating Scale, the Beck Depression Inventory, the Beck Anxiety Inventory and the Cope Scale, in comparison to the control group. Implications for future research in the area of binge eating and emotion are discussed.
