If you treat adolescents with eating disorders, you need a flexible treatment plan that can be tailored to your patient’s individual needs and which fully incorporates the adolescent’s family or caregivers. The BITE (Behavioural Interventions, Tips, and Evaluations) program is a holistic approach to recovery that can be used in inpatient or outpatient settings, with individuals and with groups.
The ground-breaking and integrative BITE program outlined in this professional guide draws on several evidence-based therapies, including Maudsley family-based treatment (FBT), cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), compassion-focused therapy (CFT), exposure therapy, and appetite awareness training.
This fully customizable approach meets the patient where they are-emotionally and cognitively-throughout the process of recovery. This book covers all aspects of the recovery process, including navigating family issues, meal planning and more.
Handouts and downloads are also included that provide solid interventions for clinicians and checklists for family members
