As noted in the comprehensive toolkit, the holiday season can be a stressful time for anyone, but it is particularly difficult for people dealing with an eating disorder. The focus on rich meals with family can trigger food anxieties and other maladaptive behavior. This toolkit provides information, resources and exercises to help patients and families overcome seasonal triggers and maintain recovery. Treatment professionals can use the guide as both a reference and a helpful tool for patients and their loved ones. The 64-page downloadable guidebook covers topics including:
- Developing coping strategies
- Talking to someone with an eating disorder
- Personal activities for reframing food association
- Family activities reinforcing sound food hygiene
- Handling medical emergencies
- Recovery resources
In addition to the guidebook, the toolkit features a range of informative articles and content features to help patients gain new perspectives on the topic of eating disorders. These include:
