Family-Based Treatment (FBT)

for Eating Disorders

Children and Adolescents 


For the parent and caregiver, FBT is demanding and intense, but can also intervene in an outpatient level of care to prevent the child needing to be hospitalized or enrolled in a residential treatment facility. FBT asks a great deal of parents or caregivers and requires close consultation with a medical doctor and often a registered dietician. For the child, FBT can be equally difficult, as the child often fights to maintain the eating disorder behaviors, but I have seen this treatment do nothing short of save lives time and time again. Please reach out to me directly to further discuss steps necessary to begin FBT treatment, including medical clearance from your child's pediatrician.
