Overcoming Disordered Eating – Part B
Both parts of this Programme are organised into modules and includes information, worksheets, and suggested exercises or activities. We recommend that you complete the Parts (and their modules) in sequence, finishing Part A before moving on to Part B.
• Programme A (Take Charge…Initiate Change) provides information about disordered eating and offers strategies to help you start changing the behaviours associated with your disordered eating and weight control habits.
• Programme B (In Charge…Mindset Matters) offers you strategies to change your disordered thoughts about eating and weight control.
The modules in Part B specifically address thought processes and mindsets in people with disordered eating. If, after having read the modules, you would like to know more about the relationship between thoughts and feelings, please ask me and we can do more CBT type work on this
This programme follows on the Overcoming Disordered Eating – Part A, and provides some strategies and techniques to change the thinking patterns associated with disordered eating. This programme is organised into modules that are designed to be worked through in sequence. We recommend that you complete one module before going on to the next. Each module includes information, worksheets, and suggested exercises or activities.
Module 1: Over-evaluation of Body Shape & Weight. This module explains what can happen when people judge their self-worth largely on how well they control their eating, weight and shape.
Module 2: Body Shape Checking,/Avoidance & “Feeling Fat”. This module discusses some of the consequences of over-emphasising shape and weight.
Module 3: What Are Mindsets?. This module describes the “eating disorder mindset,” a set of distorted beliefs about eating, weight and shape.
Module 4: Changing Mindsets. This module provides more strategies for replacing the old “mindset” with new, more helpful messages.
Module 5: Low Self-Esteem and Disordered Eating. This module explores the role of low self-esteem in disordered eating and weight control habits.
Module 6: Improving Low Self-Esteem. This module offers strategies for improving self-esteem by developing new rules for living and new, more balanced beliefs about yourself.
Module 7: Relapse Prevention. This module helps you develop a plan for maintaining the goals you have achieved so far and another plan for preventing relapse into old disordered behaviours and thoughts related to eating, shape and weight.
