Most therapist treat eating disorders as an individual problem. As a systems expert, I realize that this problem is maintained or begun by many people. Even if the contributors aren't in the room, they will be represented and addressed. Also, the solution is systemic. Many people are required to help with this problem. The "cure" is in relationships.
