Family therapy approaches for anorexia nervosa

This review investigated whether family therapy approaches reduce rates of anorexia nervosa (AN), or associated symptoms, compared to other treatments.

AN is an eating disorder caused by an intense fear of gaining weight. People with AN feel compelled to keep their body weight as low as possible (for example, by not eating enough and/or exercising excessively).

We have produced a 1-page infographic to help explain what the evidence tells us and whether we can trust the evidence.
