WHAT IS APT TREATMENT?
OVERVIEW OF ADOLESCENT & PARENT TREATMENT
APT takes the view that adolescents are unable to achieve physical recovery on their own and therefore need their parents/carers to support and take charge of their re-nourishment to achieve full physical weight restoration. The treatment team for APT includes an adolescent eating disorders specialist dietitian to support parents and carers.
APT provides individual sessions for the adolescent to address the psychological aspects of the illness via specific modules whilst parents undertake the tasks of re-nourishment. The modules cover the following and are outlined in the book “Unpack Your Eating Disorder: The Journey to recovery for Adolescents in Treatment for Anorexia Nervosa and Atypical Anorexia Nervosa”:
