Languages around the table

I named the "Around the Dinner Table" forum as a double message. First, I wanted to emphasize the centrality of coming together to eat during the process of eating disorder recovery - something that is still considered somewhat controversial.

I also wanted to honor the idea of a community coming together to talk and share. And the ATDT forum has become a community.

That community expands today, by adding a Spanish language forum, Alrededor de la Mesa. This week we will also begin to publish F.E.A.S.T. materials in Spanish, starting with our brochure.

I am so glad to expand our work to families outside the English-speaking community, and especially so as I am preparing to speak at and be an exhibitor at the upcoming Academy for Eating Disorders conference in Cancun in April.

A huge thank you to our Spanish-speaking volunteers and mentors for this step forward!


  1. I think this is a wonderful idea. My Spanish is not the best or I'd offer to help. It's great to see that you've got a couple people fluent in the language and able to support anyone who may need this.
