Family therapy is often assumed to involve the whole family; that is both parents and children attending the therapist's office together. In practice, however, which family members are included in family therapy, how often, and in what ways, is much more variable. In this article we provide an overview of the recent history of family therapy in regard to who is directly involved in therapy, and contrast changing practices in the eating disorders field with those in the family therapy field more widely. This overview leads into a discussion of current practices in family-based treatment for adolescent anorexia nervosa and the development of a new form of family therapy that is parent-focused.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 07 July 2015.
All research outputs
of 5,325,247 outputs
Outputs from Eating Disorders
of 223 outputs
Outputs of similar age
of 178,625 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Eating Disorders
of 7 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 5,325,247 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 55th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 223 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 5.2. This one is in the 43rd percentile – i.e., 43% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 178,625 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 55% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 7 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one.
