Maudsley Family Based Treatment
MFBT is the gold standard treatment for young people with eating disorders. Whilst studies vary in their recovery rates at 5 year follow ups from 35-60%, multiple studies are being conducted to look at how to improve outcomes for young people long term. MFBT invites the whole family, including siblings, into treatment and encourages the parents to take charge of refeeding with the support of the therapist.
Once parents are adequately able to help their child in the process of refeeding and recovery, independence is slowly handed back to the young person who is then taught to eat without the eating disorder getting in the way. Once this is achieved, focus is then turned to other aspects of the young person’s mental health, such as other existing disorders, as well as normal developmental ad family concerns.
