Group Information: 

 

“Integrating Intuitive Eating Principles into Eating Disorder Recovery”, 6-week supportive workshop is for individuals who are interested in gaining more knowledge and practice around the Intuitive Eating principles to support their recovery. We will meet live via Zoom for 90 minutes weekly. This group is not recorded and is held live only. This is an interactive group and we ask all participants to keep their camera on for the duration of each group. 

 

In this workshop, each week will be a blend of psychoeducation, skill practice, and supportive group process.  We will discuss the majority of intuitive eating principles and how to start practicing them safely while still actively engaging in eating disorder recovery. We will also address key topics such as self-compassion, mindfulness, better understanding cultural influences that impact how we perceive or bodies, and so much more!  We also believe peer support can be a powerful part of healing, and each group will hold space for group members to process and provide support to one another. Participants will be invited to share their experiences and ask questions throughout the workshop.
