Individual multidisciplinary therapy, including medical, psychological, family, and dietetic therapy are usually required as a minimum.
Multidisciplinary therapy is best provided by a team approach – that is, by a group of therapists who communicate and follow the same game plan. This is more effective and saves time and money.
The amount of each type of therapy varies over time in any one patient. For example, there is no specific psychological therapy other than family therapy that is more effective than supportive therapy in early anorexia nervosa.
