Family therapy has occupied a central role in the landscape of adolescent eating disorders for more than 40 years, with many rapidly evolving family therapy-based treatment advances offering an expanding scope of alternate treatment pathways. As such, we aim to provide an overview of existing evidence-based treatments for the family therapy-based treatment of a transdiagnostic array of disordered eating. In particular, we aim to summarize the most recent treatment advances, with a view to informing future directions in research.
