Neutral stance

Neutral stance refers to the neutral attitude therapists may ask parents to take regarding their child's progress through recovery. Therapists may advise parents to refrain from expressing positive feedback to the sufferer or commenting about noted changes in eating patterns, weight, shape, or appearance.  For example, a weight gain would not be congratulated; rather the number on the scale would be treated as data, not good or bad. (see open weigh-in).
