This paper will discuss family based treatment Anorexia Nervosa in Adolescence. When one family member has anorexia nervosa the whole house is affected. Hence it is very crucial for the whole family to cope with this disorder to find a solution for it.

Ways a family can help to change eating habits are to reduce meal anxiety, Siblings relationship, enabling new ways of understanding and relating, enhancing or maintain negative power dynamics, and vulnerable transitions.
