The Team Approach

Literature shows the most effective treatment for people with eating disorders engages the team approach, drawing on different professional’s expertise. The team is comprised of experienced professionals including therapists, dietitians, family therapists, psychiatrists, and physicians. In many cases, parents are also included in the treatment process. Each professional adds specific support to the client or family. The dietitian closely monitors weight, and helps clients unlearn dieting behaviors, reintegrate normalized eating patterns according to hunger and fullness cues, and reduce specific food fears.
