How Long Does FBT Take?
This varies from person to person and from family to family as well as the severity of the ED. On average FBT takes six months to a year.
My child is also struggling with anxiety and depression, does FBT help with that?
My child’s eating disorder “is not that bad”, should we wait to do FBT?
Does my child need a dietician as part of the care team?
FBT puts the trust in parents to make appropriate decisions around the type and amount of food their child needs to recover. However, there are specific instances when a dietician may be recommended. For example, if there are medical complications or risks involved, or if you are seeking additional support.
