Learning to Enjoy Life as a Family Again

It is a blessing for us to walk with you and your family on this journey toward recovery. You are not alone.

Eating disorders strongly impact family functioning. At Selah House, our desire with family therapy is not to focus blame, but to help family members understand each other and gain freedom and healing. Families become directly involved in the client’s eating disorder treatment at Selah House. Moreover, we hope to help families develop creative ways to grow together and learn to enjoy family life again.

Our family therapy sessions and individual client sessions help evaluate family needs, roles, and processing throughout treatment. We also provide as-needed phone or web conferences when distance may prevent necessary therapy. A family therapist is involved with each client individually and also in groups throughout treatment in order to increase cohesiveness and understanding between family members.

Communication Do’s and Don’ts

Odyssey Behavioral Healthcare’s AVP of Clinical Services, Kate Fisch, LCSW, talks communication do’s and don’ts in the eating disorder world.

We use intensive family-focused treatment days at the midpoint of treatment to:

  • Examine family relationship patterns
  • Help families acknowledge they are not alone on this journey
  • Educate families on the symptoms, behaviors, and habits associated with eating disorders
  • Examine the role of family in eating disorder recovery
  • List work session (tough love/affirmation, needs/boundaries, forgiveness/reconciliation)
  • Help clients, friends, and family members find hope and creative solutions
  • Promote family meals
