brave at every size group

“Self-care is how you take your power back.”


– Lalah Delia


Session Overview:

In this session, we extend our work on emotion and eating patterns by examining the ways we care for ourselves and others. We use the self-care questionnaire as a way of initiating discussion about how to care for ourselves in better ways. We also discuss the importance of setting boundaries in our roles as caregivers for others.

Homework Review:

Discuss the distraction strategies handout, and the distress tolerance handout.

Learning Objectives:

1. To study the ways we currently care for ourselves, and to develop a better self-care plan.

2. To explore the ways that caregiver stress affects eating patterns.

3. To learn to set better boundaries, and deepen our self-compassion
