Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID) in Children and Youth
The University of Calgary Research Department has estimated as many as 25% of children (5 to 24) suffer from Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID) and are seriously compromising their physical health.
ARFID is a newly defined eating disorder just recently added to the DSM-5. Sue Fortune MSc and Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist has been asked to contribute in a new clinical study through the University of Calgary to study effective treatment interventions with this unique and novel disorder for children and youth.
ARFID is a serious disorder in children and youth, it can lead to significant medical complications and to date there have have been very few clinical studies on effective treatment. Hypnotherapy can be effective with Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder and the earlier this disorder is treated, the easier it is to address the self limiting behaviors and thoughts. Children and youth are ideal Hypnotherapy candidates as they live so much in their imagination. But by treating the disorder early, you increase your child's likelihood of being a healthier, happier adult.
Sue Fortune MSc and Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist has treated children as young as 5 years old. Sue Fortune is fully certified with the Child and Youth Care Association of Alberta and a Registered Counsellor with the Canadian College of Professional Counsellors and Psychotherapists (CCPCP-r).
