Overcoming Disordered Eating - Part B
Overcoming Disordered Eating - Part B: This information package follows on the Overcoming Disordered Eating - Part A, and provides some strategies and techniques to change the thinking patterns associated with disordered eating. This infopax 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: Overevaluation of Weight and Shape
    In this module we will explore in more detail how people with eating disorders place an unusually high value on controlling their eating, weight and/or shape, and how they judge their self-worth accordingly. We will show how this leads to an over-evaluation of control over eating, weight and/or shape, and how this preoccupation and other factors keep the disordered eating going. PDF document: 621kb.
