Eating Disorders (ED) are disorders characterized by pathological behavior in eating and an obsession with weight control. These patients have high levels of shame, self-criticism and low self-compassion, so Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) is proposed as a therapeutic alternative. This study aimed to conduct a systematic review on the efficacy of CFT-based interventions in treating people with an ED. To do this, the PRISMA guidelines were followed and the existing literature from 2010 to 2020 was analyzed through a search carried out in the Scopus, Sciencedirect, PubMed, Embase, Web of Science and PsycINFO databases. The results suggest that CFT can generate positive changes in these patients, reducing the symptoms of the disorder, as well as levels of shame, self-criticism and increasing levels of self-compassion. The results of this study show that CFT can be effective in the treatment of eating disorders. However, it is still a developing field, made up of studies with methodological limitations, which requires more research to obtain more conclusive results.
