Maria-Christina Stewart, Ph.D., a FBT therapist from Zurich/Switzerland, will run a 4-week group for parents that will meet each week for 2 hours at an agreed-upon time (e.g., 10 am - 12 noon on Saturdays). Here you can find her invitation to this group:
The group will be a primer for Family Based Therapy (FBT) for eating disorders. We will discuss what FBT is and what it looks like, cover the main concepts introduced in the beginning of FBT, discuss specific applications (eg., within the context of Anorexia and Bulimia Nervosa and ARFID), and address parents' questions and concerns about implementing it.
This is ideal for parents who are waiting for an FBT therapist, as well as for parents that are debating whether and how to start it. We will be a small group of parents, so there will be plenty of time to address individual questions and applications. Please note that the group will be conducted in English.
