For Eating Disorders

The Holidays Can Be Easier This year. 

Let Us Show You How. 

Thanksgiving can be one of the most difficult times for someone with an eating disorder: coping with travel, getting out of your comfort zone, dealing with family near and far, and of course...the food. It's enough to send you into a tailspin and can put even the most solid recovery at stake. 

This year can be different. This year, you're going to have a plan. This year, you're going to have support. 

 

This year,  you're going to set yourself up for success!

Our Thanksgiving Support Group was designed with your recovery in mind. With the help of an eating disorder therapist and some like-minded peers, you can: 

  • Come up with a day-of action plan

  • Figure out what to say when dealing with difficult questions and comments from loved ones

  • Get new ideas for taking care of yourself so you can stay on the right track 

  • Connect with supportive peers who really get it

  • Get expert  support from an eating disorder therapist

  • Practice plating and enjoying a traditional holiday meal, in a way that suits your personal goals

Program Outline: 

 

Session 1: Find your "danger zones" for relapse prevention 

Identify potential triggers and start to troubleshoot solutions

 

Session 2: Skills for successful coping  

Create your personal plan for a successful holiday

Session 3 (optional) : Thanksgiving dress rehearsal 

Enjoy a traditional *Thanksgiving meal, with the support of the group facilitator and your peers. In this "challenge by choice" meal, you can practice portioning your plate, get support with any difficulties that arise, and practice putting your plan into action. 

*The meal will be catered by an outside vendor and is provided at no additional cost. 

The program takes place in person, in our private and comfortable Rockland County office.

We follow NY State and CDC Guidelines for COVID safety. Participants must show proof of COVID vaccination.
