Family-based treatment (FBT) for eating disorders is an outpatient therapy where parents are the main resource in treatment. The therapist supports the parents to do the work nurses would have done if the patient were hospitalized to a specialist inpatient-refeeding unit. Once starvation has been resolved, the parents are tasked to encourage the patient to resume adolescent development, unencumbered by the eating disorder. Recently, many new adaptations of the FBT intervention have been developed for addressing the needs of special populations. This book chronicles these novel applications of FBT in a series of chapters authored by the clinicians and investigators who are pioneering each adaptation.
