This podcast continues to discuss Family-Based Therapy for eating disorders.
In this podcast I talk to Amy Cunningham — mother of last week’s guest, Emma Cunningham. Last week we heard Emma’s story of family-based therapy from the perspective of a child who had recently been through the process. If you didn’t listen to last week’s episode you can do so here.
Amy tells us about the process of putting a child through family-based therapy. From diagnosis to close to full recovery.
In this podcast, we discuss:
Genetics of eating disorders and how they run through families.
Amy’s own experience with Anorexia and Bulimia.
How Amy recognized her daughter’s eating disorder.
Managing family-based therapy with school, work, and travel.
Working with other family members to administer family-based therapy.

Amy now works as an advocate for family-based therapy and other aspects of eating disorder treatment and understanding. You can find out more about the advocacy part of our conversation via the following links.
