Family meals in the treatment of adolescent anorexia nervosa
Abstract:The literature on the use of family meals as a focus for treatment in anorexia nervosa is now quite old and interest in this area, both clinical and academic appears to have waned. In this paper we explain the use of family meals in our treatment of adolescent eating disorder patients. Whereas earlier descriptions tend to use the language of structural family therapy and emphasize intensification, we focus more on collaboration and on anxiety reduction.
