This indispensable manual presents the leading empirically supported treatment approach for adolescents with anorexia nervosa (AN). What sets family based treatment apart is the central role played by parents and siblings throughout therapy. The book gives practitioners a clear framework for mobilizing parents to promote their childs weight restoration and healthy eating; improving parent child relationships; and getting adolescent development back on track. Each phase of therapy is described in session by session detail. In depth case illustrations show how to engage clients while flexibly implementing the validated treatment procedures.

Treatment Manual for Anorexia Nervosa, Second Edition: A Family-Based Approach Although I am a well trained child psychiatrist and somehow an experienced clinician, I have no formal training in FBT for eating disorders. However, I am treating my first case of a young girl suffering from AN following the directives of this manual, with excelent results so far.

A present didn't read Treatment Manual for Anorexia Nervosa, Second Edition: A Family-Based Approach Relevant Treatment Manual for Anorexia Nervosa, Second Edition: A Family-Based Approach Both FBT and CBT E have been found to be equally as effective for treating adolescents with AN.* The only difference being the refeed is faster with FBT because it is essentially forced from the get go. CBT E has the important advantage of being less traumatic to those suffering. When given the choice between 2 equally effective therapies, why choose the one that repeatedly floods a child’s system with cortisol and unbearable anxiety?

The inability to look at root causes in FBT may be comforting to parents seeking to avoid being blamed, but it turns a blind eye to decades of research in the eating disorder field. The fact that it is such an integral core element of FBT (and denial of parental ‘blame’ something of a mantra amongst its most ardent defenders) should raise alarm bells. Of course family dynamics and dysfunction matter in child and adolescent mental health. That should not be a controversial point (PARTICULARLY in light of decades of eating disorder research).

If you look online for critiques of FBT you will certainly find them. It encourages externalizing the disorder and many parents unfortunately take this to mean their child is possessed by a ‘monster’ or ‘demon’ they are justified to defeat at all costs. That is a retrograde way to approach treatment for mental illness, to say the least. If you go to pro FBT websites and forums you will find what I believe to be examples of abusive parental behavior.

I am not accusing the authors of ascribing to any of these extreme practices, nor do I mean to say that FBT should never be used. I AM saying that its limitations and uses need a serious and considered evaluation in the best interest of those suffering eating disorders. The levels is distress which so many patients undergo is in my view completely unjustifiable.
