Eating Disorders & Family Support
Eating disorders are also family problems. Dr. Bertha Tavarez, Clinical Director at Clementine South Miami, advises not forcing adolescents to eat, because they become more willful.
She says it’s important to get support away of the relationship. She recommends having a team of specialists in the field of eating disorders (physicians, nutritionists, therapists, psychologists), who help the entire family in this situation.
