When considering the success of any mental health treatment for youth or adolescent patients, clinicians have to factor in one dilemma: I will likely not be as influential in my patient’s life as their immediate family unit.

Join this episode alongside hosts Dr. Bob Boland
and Dr. Kerry Horrell
for advice for clinicians and parents about the realities of eating disorders and the importance of solidarity from the family system in a successful treatment and recovery journey
