Journal of Eating Disorders | Full text | Being me and being us - adolescents’ experiences of treatment for eating disorders

Journal of Eating Disorders | Full text | Being me and being us - adolescents’ experiences of treatment for eating disorders | Eating Disorders in the News | Scoop.it
This qualitative study addresses adolescents’ perception of treatment for eating disorders. The importance of involving parents in treatment of young people with eating disorders, especially young people with Anorexia Nervosa, is emphasized in a number of studies. Even so, this form of treatment does not work for everybody, not even within a limited diagnostic group. Previous research has revealed that many young people are not entirely satisfied with their treatment. However, there is a lack of knowledge concerning the perspectives of adolescents in outpatient treatment, whose treatment often involves family. The aim of the present study was to investigate how young people with experience from adolescent outpatient treatment for eating disorders, involving family-based and individual based interventions, perceive their time in treatment.
