Maudsley  model Family based treatment for Anorexia Nervosa.

The Maudsley approach can mostly be construed as an intensive outpatient treatment where parents play an active and positive role in order to: Help restore their child’s weight to normal levels expected given their adolescent’s age and height; hand the control over eating back to the adolescent, and; encourage normal adolescent development through an in-depth discussion of these crucial developmental issues as they pertain to their child. The Maudsley Approach considers the parents as a resource and essential in successful treatment for Anorexia Nervosa. This model sees strives to bring about weight restoration and restore the adolescent’s developmental trajectory. (Daniel Le Grange, PhD and James Lock, MD, PhD 2005)
