Hi ajm130,
this category is for those who wish to  give their review  of a treatment facility.
Questions about treatment facilities are best posted on the main forum.
I have moved this thread to the main forum so it will receive more traffic.

Our daughter was treated at Kartini. I barely know what to tell you... it does seem more geared towards younger children, so you might find just what you need there. They are very good at medical stabilization. For an 11 year old that could be enough. For older teens I found there were many gaps. Also, their plan seems to be “Stay on the meal plan and bring them back” if there are future concerns, vs teaching and empowering parents. And being out in the community looking for outpatient care we have been told by psychologists, therapists and dieticians that they won’t really work with people actively engaged with kartini. Again, with a child the age of yours it might be great- keep your eyes open, and if you feel like it’s “off”, don’t doubt yourself. And remember  that your love for and connection with your child is a strength, and not a liability. 


I don’t know your situation or how I’ll your child is. Have you tried Eva Musbys book/videos? So much kinder. 

We can do hard things well...

Just letting you also know that the director of Kartini clinic is Julie O’Toole. She does strongly believe in parents doing re-feeding. Her philosophy and management plans are expressed in a book called Give Food a Chance.
