Social Eating

Sufferers of eating disorders often feel anxiety and fear of criticism or humiliation when in public or social eating situations.

They fear being judged in both body shape and size, and for how and what they eat.

The Social Eating group aims to facilitate a graded approach to eating meals in the community. The group uses the experience of outings into the community, for example visiting restaurants, to enable each individual to adjust and adapt to eating away from the clinic, whilst addressing their anxiety and fear.
