Family Based Treatment (FBT) is viewed as the gold standard in treating adolescent Anorexia Nervosa and it currently produces the best evidence-based outcomes. However, the treatment is intensive and many parents commence unprepared despite their courage and willingness to take on the task of refeeding their ill child to health. Parents have desperately asked for more information to help them understand anorexia?s grip on their child and to survive the intensity of the treatment. This book was written to give these parents the tools to help them ?see it through? to the end.
This skills-based manual clearly explains the treatment, providing invaluable information to help parents through each component. It outlines the obstacles and all the anorexic behaviors that will impede treatment and recovery. The aim of this manual is to ensure parents remain one step ahead of anorexia and that they ?hit the ground running.?
This book is a valuable resource for parents commencing FBT and for parents struggling during treatment. It offers clear, practical advice and empowers parents to confront whatever the illness throws at them. It is also an important resource for clinicians and will help them guide their families through treatment.

“an excellent and comprehensive overview of the treatment. this book was like having my
therapist constantly at hand to answer my questions when a difficult situation arose.”
Sam Townsend, mother of girl, aged 13, suffering from Anorexia
“this manual is my number one resource for parents and clinicians involved in fbt. since
using this manual in my private practice, parents have routinely told me that the manual
has helped them feel empowered and knowledgeable about beating Anorexia. I highly
recommend clinicians use this manual as a companion to FBT to ensure consistency in the
information parents receive.”
Dr Linsey Atkins, Hope Family Clinic
“the path that parents take to help their child recover from an eating disorder is often
daunting and full of challenges. This manual - written with wisdom, warmth and
understanding - provides parent with practical information, helpful tips and inspiring advice
that will be useful as an adjunct to treatment.”
