Experimental: Visual feedback of symptom frequency
Participants in this arm receive visual feedback of their symptom frequency over the first 4 weeks of active treatment, based on information they provide on a symptom checklist.
Behavioral: Visual feedback of symptom frequency
Participants receive visual feedback of their symptom frequency over the first 4 weeks of active treatment, based on information they provide on a symptom checklist.
No Intervention: No visual feedback of symptom frequency
Participants in this arm complete the symptom checklist as is typically done during treatment, but receive no visual feedback of their self-reported symptom frequency over the first 4 weeks of active treatment.
- Change in eating disorder symptoms from baseline [ Time Frame: Administered weekly up to week 25 (end of group treatment) ]Symptoms will be measured using a Weekly Symptom Checklist which asks participants to indicate frequency of the previous week's eating disorder symptoms (regular eating, objective and subjective binge eating, various methods of purging).
- The behavioral section of the Eating Disorders Examination (EDE) [ Time Frame: At week 6, 10, and up to 25 weeks (end of group treatment) ]The behavioural section of the Eating Disorders Examination (EDE) will be modified to focus on the 28-day period directly prior to the assessment, rather than the prior 3 months as is typical. The behavioural section of the EDE assesses frequency of regular eating (i.e., meals and snacks) and frequency of eating disorder behaviours such as objective binge eating episodes, subjective binge eating episodes, frequency of self-induced vomiting, laxative use, diuretic use, and frequency and duration of exercise for compensatory or weight control purposes.
