Abstract: We present an integrative, experiential-based, psychological treatment for binge-eating disorder (BED). The Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory III (MCMI-III), Eating Disorder Inventory 3 (EDI-3), Social Cognitive Scales of Healthy Eating Behavior have used pre- and post-treatment for the assessment of the personality features and associated symptoms, binge-eating symptomatology and eating behavior. The experiential psychotherapy consisted of 10 sessions. The reflective, mindfulness-based strategies, creative-expressive and behavioral techniques were focused both on the psychological maladaptive mechanisms, and symptoms of the BED. The psychological treatment reduced the BED symptomatology and depressive symptoms associated with BED.
