When looking for help for eating disorders an important part of the plan will be family therapy, this can be uncomfortable not just for the person with the eating disorder but also for the family of that person. Family therapy is however one of the most important parts of the program since the family is always going to be the first line of support for the child with an eating disorder.

Family therapy will help the family understand how to help the child with an eating disorder and will also teach them the things they need to know to identify the behavior and not enable it. Just as importantly however family therapy can strengthen family ties and build trust offering the child the safety they need when it is time to face the world around them.
