This chapter explores theories concerning family processes when a young person develops an eating disorder and how theories have evolved over time. Attention is paid to how, in the past, the family was seen as part of etiology, whereas now it may be viewed as a maintaining factor. The chapter concludes with recommendations as to how thinking about family processes can influence treatment planning.
