Thanksgiving Holiday Support Group
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!

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
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.
