Have you been concerned about your child’s eating?

Children with symptoms of Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID) and their families are invited to participate in a Family-Based Treatment (FBT) vs. a manualized Non-Specific Care (NSC) research study through the Stanford Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences.

Our study consists of 14 one-hour telehealth sessions in either treatment arm, along with required medical management, over the course of 4 months. Treatment will be provided by doctoral-level, highly-skilled therapists.

Who can participate?

  • Children ages 6-12

  • Underweight

  • Symptoms of ARFID (undereating, picky eating, and/or fearfulness of eating)

  • Able to speak English

  • Living with at least one parent (the whole family will be enrolled for treatment)

  • Medically stable for outpatient treatment

  • Able to make a 6-month commitment
