For families, recognizing an eating disorder in their teen can be an overwhelming and scary discovery. Parents are often filled with questions and doubts, “Is this a phase? Will it go away on its own? What can I do? What should I do?” In the current talk, we will discuss how family-based therapy for eating disorders works to help teens recover. We will also discuss the important role of individual therapists and primary care providers as they work together with family-based therapists. Applying concrete skills and vignettes, this webinar will illustrate the principles of helping families and teens face eating disorder recovery with courage and compassion.
