Are you wondering if family therapy is suitable for your young adult with anorexia?
It looks like it might be. On forums I read parents’ experiences of using FBT/Maudsley pretty much in the same way as they did when their child was younger. But it might be possible to adapt the approach with a therapist’s help, so that the young person takes on a little more ownership of their treatment. This works if they agree, at least in principle, to have their parents’ help.
For more on this, head over to my article on mirror-mirror here.
It summarises findings in a chapter of this excellent book (which all clinicians should have).
