The 10th Step - Self-Inventory, Using this Step in ED Recovery

I recently participated in a continuing education opportunity where the topic was how to utilize some of the 12-step strategies in the treatment of Eating Disorders. Alcoholics Anonymous is a pillar in the recovery community. The work of the 12-steps to help individuals gain lasting recovery from alcohol and drugs has been invaluable. 

 

The 10th step of the 12-step program is self-inventory. It's a daily/regular inventory one does with oneself to assess how he/she is doing and what might be valued actions for rectifying any uncovered difficulties experienced. This got me thinking about putting together a self-inventory similar to that used for the AA 12-step program, but for those in recovery from Eating Disorders. 

 

 

 

Here it is: 

Eating Disorder Treatment Inventory

(Based on the 10th step of the 12th steps – Self-Inventory)

Have I been:  

Resentful – of who/what?

 

Selfish – how?

 

Dishonest – how?

 

Fearful – of what?

 

Am I obsessing about anything?

 

Am I keeping secrets?

 

Have I caused any harm? Do I owe any apologies?

 

Recovery Checklist (in the last week have I…):

- Practiced a coping skill, this one:                                                         

- Followed my prescribed meal plan

- Practiced food freedom, how:                                                             

- Lived out a value, which one/how:                                                                   

- Met with my therapist and/or dietitian

- Helped someone else pursue recovery
