According to a recent literature review published in Clinical Child and Family Psychology Review, several studies provide initial support for the application, efficacy/effectiveness, and transportability of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) for children with internalizing disorders. This review focused specifically on computer-based CBT, camp-based CBT, school-based CBT, and CBT delivered in primary care settings and lends support for these methods.

A study published in Behaviour Research and Therapy found a significant improvement in eating disorder symptoms (behavior and cognitions), among adolescent participants (n=101) with bulimia nervosa (BN) or bulimic symptomatology following the completion of an internet-based cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) intervention. These findings suggest that an internet-based approach could serve as an initial intervention for adolescents with bulimic symptomatology.
