During a family meal session, the clinician is able to model what meal coaching looks like when having a meal with a loved one who struggles with an ED. It can also be a great opportunity for the parents to meal coach with clinical support and supervision. This is suited for parents and their child who has been recently diagnosed with an ED or for families who have already gone through treatment and now have their loved one at home.
