Mealtime Support Therapy

Because nutrition and food become a battleground for families where a child suffers anorexia, bulimia or other eating disorders, Meal Support Therapy helps bring the parents into the treatment, and highlight the thoughts and feelings around food and meals that the patient experiences.  MST also provides many strategies to move from “forcing” to actively assisting a new interaction with mealtime.  MST includes role-modeling, boundary-setting, communication and coaching skills.
