Skills manual for parents undertaking Family Based Treatment (FBT) for child and adolescent Anorexia Nervosa.
Family Based Treatment (FBT) is viewed as the gold standard in treating adolescent Anorexia Nervosa and it currently produces the best evidence-based outcomes. However, the treatment is intensive and many parents commence unprepared despite their courage and willingness to take on the task of re-feeding their ill child to health. Parents have desperately asked for more information to help them understand anorexia’s grip on their child and to survive the intensity of the treatment. This book was written to give these parents the tools to help them “see it through” to the end.
