Abstract

Eating disorders are common during childhood and adolescence. Early intervention is associated with the best prognosis. Treatment interventions that focus on achieving ideal body weight and use various family therapy approaches are most likely to be effective. Much remains to be learned about the origin of AN, but there are promising recent advances.
