Eating Disorder treatment

Meet Our Team Of Eating Disorder's Psychiatrists


Family based therapy (FBT) has been successfully used in the treatment of eating disorders. It is different than other therapy approaches, such as – it does not try to understand or find out the various factors causing the individual’s eating disorder, but instead focuses on what can be done to move the individual towards recovery as quickly as possible. Neither the individual nor the parents or other members of the family blamed for the development of the disorder. It also believes in ‘externalization’ of the disorder, that is, separating the individual from the disorder. It psycho-educates the parents/ family that the individual did not have a control on developing the disorder, and similarly cannot wilfully choose to stop the behaviours associated with their disorder. This can help reduce parental criticism, which is linked to negative outcomes for recovery. Also, the therapist in FBT takes a non-authoritarian stance, collaborating with the family members to figure out the best way to help the individual recover, since the family members have better knowledge regarding the individual’s habits, routines, likes, dislikes, preferences, cultural, ethnic and religious backgrounds, etc.

How effective is Family Therapy for Eating Disorder?

Family therapy is effective in using the family as a resource for helping the individual with an eating disorder recover from the thoughts, behaviours, and feelings associated with their disorder and monitor their eating habits to gain back their physical health.

What are the benefits of Family Therapy for Eating Disorder?

Family therapy allows the individual with eating disorder to make use of their family members who act as a support system and helps the individual control their eating behaviours. Thus, the monitoring and support provided by the family is similar to inpatient settings.

How many numbers of sessions are required?

The number of sessions differs for each family depending on the individual’s condition and the family’s and individual’s response to the sessions.
