The Role of the Pediatrician in Family-Based Treatment for Adolescent Eating Disorders: Opportunities and Challenges
For many of us the family doctor or pediatrician is the first port of call when we suspect something is wrong. This is where it can go wrong (ours thought our daughter needed "more salt") or very, very right. This article gives the information to pediatricians in a form and with the authority they need it.
If your child's pediatrician is giving you funny looks when you mention Family-Based Treatment: here's the cure.
If your child's pediatrician is backing away slowly in concern when you say you want to take over re-feeding at home: here's reassurance.
If your pediatrician thinks your family's therapist is selling snake oil: here's verification.
The article may be for pediatricians but I can guarantee it will be widely used by parents to help work WITH their pediatricians. Copy 1 goes to our family doctor.
