Two large meta-analyses have been conducted about positive psychology interventions (PPI’s). Most of these interventions were developed for and tested in general population samples, student samples or for people with mild or moderate depressive symptomatology. Less is known about the efficacy of PPIs in people with eating disorders (anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge-eating disorder). Different interventions have been developed in recent years, for example based on self-compassion, mindfulness or Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. What is available, feasible and effective?
