ACT for Adolescent Anorexia Nervosa
(1 R21 MH085975 -01)
We developed and tested a 20-week acceptance-based separated family treatment (ASFT) for adolescents with anorexia nervosa, or eating disorder NOS in which the primary symptoms were restrictive eating and excessive weight loss. Treatment components were based on ACT and included a parent skills based on Off the C.U.F.F. (Zucker, 2006). This study was in collaboration with Dr. C. Alix Timko, now at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP).
