How will I use the LEFTOVERS materials?

Help your patients make real breakthroughs and achieve real change in their lives. You'll be encouraging participants to examine attitudes and patterns of behavior related to food and body image using a variety of creative arts therapies (art, drama, music, writing, movement, recreation)—all while working toward the goal of self-acceptance at any size. You get 16 sessions you can use immediately—run as a full course, or incorporate the most relevant topics into your current practice. Either way, the prep work is done—simply gather the materials listed and you're ready to go! Here's what's included:
  • A DVD of "LEFTOVERS: The Ups and Downs of a Compulsive Eater."
  • A complete facilitator binder, including a step-by-step outline and list of materials for each session, copies of all worksheets and homework assignments, tips for facilitators and helpful information on using expressive arts techniques and group process.
  • Five sets of participant materials, including worksheets for in-session and homework exercises.
  • Participant binders to store completed worksheets and other notes.
  • Additional sets of participant materials are also available and can be ordered separately in groups of five.

The LEFTOVERS Workbook/DVD set was developed by Education Through Therapeutic Arts (ETTA) founders Deah Schwartz Ed.D., CTRS, and Anne Wilford, M.A. MFT—each with 20+ years experience in therapy, education, and improvisational theatre. They developed this curriculum to help educators, therapists and facilitators break through old barriers with new, creative approaches—in a simple, easy-to-run format that will keep both you and your patients engaged.
