Family Based Therapy for Adolescents
Parents and family members can be patients’ best allies in the treatment process!
Many adolescents and young adults with Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa benefit from a Family Based Treatment Approach (FBT). FBT involves the entire family working with the therapist to take charge of re-feeding their child and working toward health. The process begins with a parent in charge approach and works with the patient and family to transition to independence as recovery from disordered eating occurs.
