find yours here.

"We were told to go home and feed our kid...now what??" 

Family Based Treatment (FBT) is an evidence-based, first-line therapy for pediatric and adolescent eating disorders. Although it is very effective, it can also be emotionally challenging. Whether you are brand new to FBT, a seasoned parent who has already found success with it, or somewhere in between,

this group is for you!  ​

In this group, you will:

​​

  • Learn practical strategies to get your child/teen to eat without forcing, threatening, or yelling. 

  • Know exactly what to say and how to say it so that your responses are helpful and effective.

  • Get advice for handling the really hard stuff, like self harm, panic attacks, and tough conversations. ​

  • Get support from parents like you, who understand you like no one else can

  • Find out what has worked for other parents in your situation.

  • Get your questions answered by our eating disorder therapists, other parents, and guest experts

  • Hear from guest speakers who will share their insight and knowlege 

  • Vent, laugh, cry, and talk it all out. Come as you are and leave feeling ready to tackle whatever comes next.
