Dr. Eddy focuses her research on understanding the pathophysiology of restrictive eating disorders and using this knowledge to develop and test novel treatments. Along with her colleague, Jennifer Thomas, she developed a novel treatment for avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID). She is the co-author of two books describing this treatment, including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder: Children, Adolescents, and Adults, and The Picky Eater’s Recovery Book, and has written more than 170 scientific publications. She is currently Principal Investigator on two NIMH-funded studies, including one randomized controlled clinical trial of CBT-AR for children and adolescents with ARFID, and another randomized controlled clinical trial evaluating physiologic estrogen as a novel treatment for females with anorexia nervosa and related disorders. Both studies build on her neurobiological research by targeting brain mechanisms through treatment. Dr. Eddy is also well-known for her longitudinal research, having led an outcome study of anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa, documenting recovery rates over 25 years. In her role as Co-Director of the EDCRP, she provides patient care and clinical and research supervision to doctoral students, pre-doctoral interns, psychiatry residents, psychiatry fellows, and junior faculty. She provides psychotherapy trainings on CBT-AR locally, nationally, and internationally.
