Multifamily therapy may add to the effectiveness of single-family therapy for adolescents with anorexia nervosa
Family therapy for anorexia nervosa (FT-AN) currently has the strongest evidence base for the treatment of medically stable adolescents; however, many adolescents treated with FT-AN do not respond.1 Efforts are therefore being directed at improving FT-AN through adjuncts and adaptations. Multifamily therapy for AN (MFT-AN) is a FT-AN informed treatment in which 5-7 families attend day treatment together. MFT has shown promise in open trials,2 3 but until now no randomised trial has been conducted. (Source: Current Awareness Service for Health (CASH))
