Family-Based Maudsley support in Israel

One of the great things about the work I do is connecting families with resources. Thanks to the joys of Google, I send this out knowing that it may reach families in Israel seeking treatment for anorexia and bulimia for a loved one.

Dr. Joy Jacobs does family therapy in California, and is affiliated with the University of San Diego Eating Disorders program, which offers some of the most progressive and science-based treatment in the world. Dr. Jacobs will be in Israel Sept 26-Oct. 17 to do some therapist training/supervision of the Maudsley model. She is hoping to connect with parents who are seeking FBT/Maudsley support to help them map out a game plan for their family.

If you or another family would be interested in consulting with Dr. Jacobs, please feel free to contact her. She has a website at or you can email her at

I have presented at a conference with Dr. Jacobs and I am a real admirer of the work she does and the UCSD program. Parents who have worked with the program have given me nothing but good reports – often after many false starts at treatment for their children.

Please pass this information on to anyone you feel might be interested!
