I can’t believe it’s been 7 years since I led one of these but after many requests for this in the Twin Cities, it’s time. I keep hearing from therapists who treat people with eating disorders that the families of their clients need this - no doubt. The book is in the publication process and I'm not writing and editing all the time now, so it's here!
This is the chance for families to be able to talk with other families who "get it" for unless you have lived this horror, it's tough to really understand what it is like loving someone who is in the grips of an eating disorder. We'll have some group coaching, someone to listen to you, acknowledge the crisis you are in as well as the losses you are experiencing, give you some encouragement and connect you with your greatest source of strength.
Parent/Family/Friends Support Group ~ beginning this March! This is for anyone who cares about someone with an eating disorder – not just parents!
