    This presentation will provide an overview of multidisciplinary treatment of adolescents and their families with eating disorders. Topics will include practical and applied techniques addressing medical and psychiatric issues, techniques for treatment engagement, involving the family system, advocacy and community resources. The application of two evidence-based treatment strategies for addressing adolescent eating disorders will also be discussed. Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) emphasizes building coping skills for adolescents, parents, and families utilizing the four modules of mindfulness, emotional dysregulation, interpersonal effectiveness, and distress tolerance. Family-based treatment (FBT)(Maudsley Method) empowers the parents to take an active role of their child’s eating and recovery through an emphasis on nutritional and behavioral change through three treatment phases.
