Anorexia Nervosa: What to Do When Treatment Fails for Kids and Teens?

Denial of the illness and avoidance of treatment goals represent significant obstacles to therapeutic engagement for many children and adolescents who might otherwise have a reasonable prognosis of recovery from anorexia nervosa. Coercive treatment might play a vital, life-saving role for certain patients. Through examination of case examples, this CCB enables child and adolescent psychiatrists to better recognize when the clinical safety considerations of an individual require increasing levels of coercive treatment in order to treat the patient, as well as when issues of capacity to make treatment decisions may require a range of treatment options from voluntary, to coercive, to compulsory. The role of the parents in the treatment process is described, including when parents do not consent to medically necessary care and do not cooperate with treatment.
