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))

Autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) are characterised by impairments in communication and reciprocal social interaction. These impairments can impact on relationships with family members, augment stress and frustration, and contribute to behaviours that can be described as challenging. Family members of individuals with ASD can experience high rates of carer stress and burden, and poor parental efficacy. While there is evidence to suggest that individuals with ASD and family members derive benefit from psychological interventions designed to reduce stress and mental health morbidity, and enhance coping, most studies to date h...

While most treatment of schizophrenia involves one or more antipsychotic medications, other treatments have also proven effective and vital to helping a person with schizophrenia maintain their recovery. Medications seem to work best on certain symptoms of schizophrenia, such as hallucinations, delusions, and incoherence. Even when people with schizophrenia are relatively free of psychotic symptoms, many still have extraordinary difficulty with communication, motivation, self-care, and establishing and maintaining relationships with others. Moreover, because patients with schizophrenia frequently become ill during the crit...
