ROSSATO, Mara Lúcia; SILVA, Douglas de Quadros da  y  RICHTER, Alessandra. The importance of father in systemic treatment of anorexia nervosa. Pensando fam. [online]. 2019, vol.23, n.2, pp. 92-104. ISSN 1679-494X.

This article aims to address the issues related to the paternal function in anorexia nervosa and its potential importance within its systemic treatment, after a brief background on the historical development of its nosological concept and relate it to the image and the role of the father in the scientific literature. There is a lot of information about the intra-family relationships in anorexia, but specific analysis of the paternal role are scarce, prevailing aspects of the mother-daughter relationship. We will also explore the case example of patient “R”., diagnosed with anorexia nervosa and treated in the Eating Disorders Group in the Center for Psychosocial Care for Children (CAPSi) of Porto Alegre Clinical Hospital (HCPA), linked to the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), where we consider the role of the father as a main instrument in her quick recovery.

Palabras clave : Anorexia nervosa; Systemic therapy; Paternal role.
