Family-Based Treatment (FBT) is the best-evidenced approach for the treatment of adolescent anorexia nervosa (AN) and bulimia nervosa (BN). Several randomized clinical trials and a meta-analysis support this view leading to FBT being recommended as the first line approach for adolescents with AN and BN in many international guidelines. Nonetheless, there remains much that requires further examination and consideration related to FBT.

This Research Topic takes up current themes and topics related to FBT including the following:
- Systematic review of the impact of FBT on hospitalization use and cost
- Challenges of scaling and implementing FBT with fidelity in systems of care and differing cultural contexts
- FBT for Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder
- Use of augmenting and adaptive strategies to identify and improve early response in FBT
- Use of telehealth to deliver FBT
- The role of expressed emotion in response to FBT
- Adapting FBT for use with young adults with eating disorders.
