Title
A New Covenant of Blessing: Negotiating Change in Eating Disordered Families
Abstract

On the basis of the theory that there is a systemic nature to eating disorders, a program is proposed that outlines a treatment approach in which parents are active participants. The use of formal contracts is set forth as a means for negotiating change within the family system. The proposed model for contracting is derived from the elements contained in God'€™s covenant with his elected people and provides a theological basis for that model.
