New Realities Program Goals PDF Print E-mail

Recovery from an eating disorder requires an understanding of the usually unconscious reasons for the disturbed eating behaviors and body size manipulation. Along with this understanding, development of new strategies for dealing with emotions and difficult situations is also crucial.

In order to achieve this, New Realities treatment programs are designed to assist clients in:

  • Accepting and trusting their bodies, listening and responding to their signals including hunger
  • Developing a greater understanding of who they are and what they can be
  • Exploring their attitudes and beliefs about themselves, others and life and changing those that are no longer functioning well for them.
  • Creating an inner sense of self-caring, trust and personal power
  • Recognizing, processing and expressing feelings
  • Developing new communication skills
  • Reducing stress in healthy ways
  • Taking responsibility for themselves and their lives.
