Psychotherapy for Youth with Eating Disorders: Family-Based Treatment – May 24

Apr 24, 2024 | Learning Opportunities

The Academy for Eating Disorders has outlined the most effective, first-line psychological treatments for children/adolescents with eating disorders, and Family-Based Treatment (FBT) has illustrated the greatest effectiveness across diagnoses. In this presentation, we will present an overview of this novel treatment approach, describe situations in which FBT can be most useful, and review the three stages of FBT. We will demonstrate special techniques for families to use during family meals, both in the clinic and at home between sessions, and we will describe adaptations for using FBT with transition-aged youth and via telehealth. Finally, we will highlight material with case examples throughout.
