Hi ATDT community:

Here is a great opportunity for free treatment of a modified family treatment for adolescent Anorexia Nervosa; ages 12-18 are eligible. It is online. If you are interested please contact them directly and inquire.


Stanford University & The University of California, San Francisco Eating Disorders Research Programs

PI’s: James D. Lock, MD, Ph.D.; Daniel Le Grange, Ph.D.

Stanford University and UCSF are conducting a 5 year NIH sponsored study examining the efficacy of a modified family treatment for adolescent Anorexia Nervosa (AN). Adolescents ages 12 to 18 with a diagnosis of AN and their families are invited to participate in a Family Based Treatment research study through Stanford University’ and UCSF’s Eating Disorder Programs. By participating in this study participants receive FBT, an evidence-based treatment, free of charge and $50 upon completion of the study.

If interested in participating, please contact Madelyn Johnson at  (415)476-0622 or email madelyn.johnson@ucsf.edu or Kyra Citron at (650)723-9182 or email familytreatment@stanford.edu. Please note that this is a multi-site study conducted online, and the clinicians/researchers could be from Stanford University or UCSF depending on availability.




Sounds like an amazing opportunity.

Very interested to know what intensive parental coaching consists of. Certainly sounds useful!
