Methods and Materials: For this purpose, among the people with this disorder who referred to psychiatric and psychological clinics in Mashhad, 24 people were selected voluntarily and were randomly assigned in to two experimental and control groups. The experimental group received group compassion therapy in 8 sessions of 1.5 hours and the control group did not receive any intervention. The dependent variables were measured twice in pretest and post test. The Binge Eating Scale and the Quality of Life Questionnaire were used to measure the variables.
