Abstract

Volume I consists of a systematic literature review, empirical research paper, and public dissemination document. The systematic review of Instagram and eating disorder (ED) psychopathology found that content viewed on Instagram, rather than overall Instagram consumption, may reflect individuals ED psychopathology. However, further research displaying greater internal and external reliability is required before a comprehensive consensus of findings can be achieved and used to inform the development of targeted online public health campaigns or interventions. The research paper presents a study exploring the associations between Instagram, body image, and orthorexia nervosa (ON), an alleged ED that is characterised by a preoccupation with consuming healthy and pure foods. Instagram usage may be an important factor to consider in treatment and prevention efforts. The public dissemination document provides an accessible overview of the review and research paper.

Volume II consists of five Clinical Practice Reports (CPRs). CPR I presents a Cognitive-Behavioural and Systemic formulation of a 15-year-old female with anxiety. CPR II presents a case study of a Cognitive Behavioural treatment intervention for a 12-year-old female with anxiety. CPR III presents a single-case research design to assess the effects of Exposure Response Prevention with a 15-year-old male with OCD. CPR IV presents a service evaluation of the Formulation Training Programme in an Older Adult’s Service. CPR V presents a presentation abstract for a case study of a 30-year-old male with chronic Intestinal Failure using the Cognitive Behavioural Therapy model for depression.
