Family therapy for adolescents with eating disorders: A Master Class

Join two preeminent clinical researchers in eating disorder treatment for a 2‐day Master Class covering advanced topics in family therapy for adolescent eating disorders.

Learning Objectives

  1. Create treatment plans to address the specific needs of individual families at different stages of treatment
  2. Apply discussion about advanced topics—including difficulties in engagement, getting stuck midway in treatment, shifting focus from weight gain to broader individual and family issues, revisiting family therapy during relapses—to your current case examples.
  3. Identify families that are not a good fit for the standard family approach and select treatment modifications using emerging research.
