- InterventionsFor the daycenter:
'Treatment-as-usual’ (TAU) lasts 6-9 months and is multidisciplinary in nature. Patients follow a 4-day program. The module aggression regulation is a regular part of this program, but is only offered to 2 patients at a time (TAU + module: condition A). The other patients follow the regular program (only TAU: condition B). The module consists of 6 weekly sessions of 1 hour.
If time allows, patients in the control condition may follow the module later on, after a waiting period.

For the outpatient clinic:
Regularly patients with eating disorders will be offered a diet-group but this group only starts after 6-7 weeks. The module will be offered during this waitingperiod. One group will follow the module and afterward the dietgroup (Module+ TAU; group A), one group will enter the dietgroup after the regular waitingperiod (waitingperiod + TAU; group B).
- Primary outcome1. Coping with aggression: Changes in the degree of internalisation and externalisation of aggression (SECS);
2. Appraisal of the module (satisfaction scale).
- Secondary outcome1. Eating behavior and attitudes (EDE-Q);
2. General functioning (OQ-45).
- TimepointsFor the daycenter:
At start TAU, after 2 months (randomization and start intervention), after 4 months (end of the intervention), after 6-9 months (end TAU).

For the outpatient setting:
At start inervention after intake, after 2 months (end of intervention), after 3-5 months (end dietgroup).

- Brief summaryThe purpose of this study is to support the need to address anger and aggression in evidence-based treatment of eating disorders and to introduce psychomotor therapy as a body oriented therapy for aggression regulation. The ultimate goal is to accelerate the overall process of (multidisciplinary) treatment by triggering a functional self-expression.
