I am currently confronted with a 12 year old girl, 1,61 m, and having lost weight over the last 8 weeks now down to 39 kilograms (10 pounds weight loss in 2 months). She has adopted reduced eating habits, refuses to eat at normal meal times, and has fully changed what was healthy eating habits (3 months ago) and is causing concern to her parents. I have tried to suggest behavioural therapeutic techniques, setting sanctions for her maladaptive behaviour but the parents are going thru emotional turmoil applying this "stringent" technique. Any suggestions from other clinicians in this area? Thanks in advance.
