Angela Celio Doyle, PhD, and Peter Doyle, PhD will discuss common misconceptions about the treatment of adolescents with restrictive eating disorders and provide an overview of Family Based Treatment (FBT; also called the Maudsley Approach). FBT is the most efficacious treatment for adolescent anorexia nervosa, with 80% of adolescents achieving full weight restoration and start or resumption of menses at the conclusion of treatment. Explorations of other applications of FBT, for instance, for young adults (ages 18-24) and within a residential treatment program, will be discussed.

University, San Diego State University, University of California at San Diego, Northwestern University, and The University of Chicago. They are Clinical Instructors of Psychology at the University of Washington. In addition, they serve as faculty members within the Training Institute for Child and Adolescent Eating Disorders and are certified providers of Family-Based Treatment for adolescent eating disorders.
For those who are interested, a consult group of providers who already treat, or are interested in treating, clients with concerns around food, body image, exercise, and weight will form out of this meeting.
