“Modified FBT is a therapy which puts the parents in the lead role for decision-making, and utilizes support and recommendations from therapy, nutrition, educational, medical, and movement clinicians.”

“FBT is a paradigm shift. Parents and caregivers are part of the solution, rather than stigmatized as part of the cause of adolescent ED”

“The ‘Working with Adolescents and Their Families in Eating Disorder Treatment’ course was well worth the time and investment. Working with adolescent patients has been one of the most challenging areas of treatment in my practice. I am always looking for new ways to be an effective dietitian with this specific and vulnerable population group. This course provided a wealth of information on the underlying principles behind the family-based treatment and specific strategies on how to implement these principles in a practical way. It both affirmed the interventions I apply in my practice and introduced new ways to approach dietary treatment with adolescents and families. I look forward to having access to this program as I continue to refine my skills as an RD specializing in eating disorder treatment.”

“This EDPro Symposium is a great course, led by experts in the field of nutrition intervention for adolescents with eating disorders. Each expert offers a different perspective, supported by relevant research, that I will use to expand my practice. The combination of presentations, articles and discussion has inspired me to consider the larger perspective of adolescent eating disorder treatment. I would highly recommend this program for both dietitians getting started with adolescent treatment and dietitians who are looking for updated information on how to best treat teens and adolescents.”
