A partial outpatient feeding disorder programme can be the most flexible type of therapy that a child could receive. This level of care offers the least disruption to regular day-to-day life. That's what makes it particularly attractive to those children who wouldn't feel comfortable with too much of a disruption.
Comfort is extremely important when working with outpatient eating disorder treatment. The more comfortable a child is, the more likely they'll be to positively respond to their treatment. Therapy can be challenging and intimidating. The kind of plan that a partial outpatient feeding disorder programme follows helps to lessen some of this intimidation.
As treatment progresses, a child will more than likely need fewer and fewer sessions to receive the kind of support that they need. A therapist might ultimately recommend spacing sessions out over time. They could go to an every-other-week basis where your child would only need to meet with one each fortnight. Eventually they could go to a plan that only requires them to meet on an extended support as-needed basis.
While outpatient eating disorder treatment isn't for everyone, it certainly is flexible. Our professional intake teams will discuss different treatment options with you and your child to help you make a more informed choice about which program it would make the most sense to go with.
