Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In this review, we discuss the treatment of anorexia nervosa (AN) in children and adolescents, highlighting inpatient and outpatient psychiatric treatment. AN is an illness that involves medical and psychological issues; hence, treatment often requires the seamless integration of several medical professionals. It is important that the treatment model be unified and consistent as patients transition from inpatient to outpatient treatment. We briefly describe the therapeutic principles involved in treatment of AN and then give examples of how we employ these principles across treatment settings and with multiple medical professionals.
