Event Description

With: Dr. Katherine Henderson and Dr. Shari Mayman

This two-day intensive Emotion-Focused Family Workshop is an incredible opportunity for parents and caregivers of individuals struggling with an eating disorder, regardless of their age.

Through education, video demonstration and skills practice, parents and caregivers will become equipped with practical strategies with respect to 1) meal support & symptom interruption, and 2) emotional support and relationship repair. Parents and caregivers will also be supported to 3) identify, work through and overcome many obstacles that surface in this challenging and novel journey. The specific skills taught over the course of the 2 days are meant to be effective regardless of the affected individual's age or motivation for change.

This workshop is open to parents, step-parents, grand-parents, aunts, uncles, spouses, partners and any other adult caregiver - whether or not they are involved in active treatment with their loved one.
