Adapting Family-Based Treatment for Adolescent Anorexia Nervosa Across Higher Levels of Patient Care
An increasing body of evidence supports the use of family-based treatment (FBT) in medically stable outpatient presentations of adolescent anorexia nervosa, although there is relatively less research on adapting evidence-based treatment approaches in more intensive levels of patient
care. The integration of FBT, which centrally leverages parental involvement in more intensive levels of care which typically require greater clinical management, requires careful consideration. We provide an overview of several key practical and theoretical considerations when adjusting the
delivery of FBT across more intensive levels of patient care, providing clinical guidelines for the delivery of FBT while ensuring fidelity to the core theoretical tenets. Implications for clinical practice and future research are discussed.
