Literature and Publications
In keeping with EDA's 4th Tradition, use of outside literature (including literature from other Twelve Step groups) in EDA meetings is contingent on Group Conscience vote.
To prevent impact to other groups and EDA as whole, please state, "This group has voted to include outside literature, [name of specific text]" at the start of each meeting where outside literature is used.

The EDA Step Workbook contains a few ideas (such as working with a Step Buddy) that our cumulative experience has shown to be less than optimal to support newcomers seeking recovery from an eating disorder. We think it is very important to work with a sponsor. In deference to EDA members who want to use the older material, we are leaving the existing Step Workbook up until after the EDA Step Workhop in July. The purpose of the Step Workshop in July is to increase the number of sponsors in EDA who are able to use the EDA Big Book. When a suitable replacement for the Step Workbook is available, the General Service Board will replace the existing one. For now, please use Chapter 7 in the EDA Big Book rather than the older Step Workbook below.
