– Steps for Completion :
*Read five (5) chapters of your choice from Going Hungry. Taking notes as you read is a recommended practice.
*Complete all the 5 questions in the reflection sheet that I’ve provided in the additional materials, using the same 5 questions for each of the five chapters.
*Please write at least 50 words (3 to 4 well-written sentences) per question.
1.) Which chapter did you read and what drew you to it?
2.) What was most striking or memorable to you about this chapter?
3.) What specific disorders or diagnoses did this person have, and what other struggles or challenges did they describe?
4.) In dealing with these struggles, what sorts of things did the author find helpful?
5.) Significant struggles sometimes are accompanied by new-found strengths, more positive self-images, closer relationships, or other
elements of positive growth, insight or transcendence. Does the author describe any good that came out of her/his struggles with eating? If so, what?
