Online Drop-In Group for Caregivers: Insight From a Psychologist (B)

This online drop-in group is suitable for parents, partners, friends, siblings, loved ones, and supporters of anyone with eating disorders.

About This Group

Folks in EDSNA support groups often tell us that insight from the program facilitator, registered psychologist Karen Wadson, is one of the most useful components of our support groups. With this in mind, we’ve created a group to offer space specifically for this- learn from Karen’s experiences, both as an EDSNA facilitator and private practice psychologist.

This group will also leave time and space for participants to bring their own topics for discussion– we encourage participants to bring questions!

NOTE: information provided is offered as general information, and is not meant to substitute for work with a care team supporting an individual or family’s unique circumstances. We will not be able to offer case-specific information.

EDSNA support groups are always:

  • Professionally-facilitated by people with extensive backgrounds in eating disorders.
  • Intended to support to those wishing to support someone through their path to recovery in a safe, nonjudgmental environment
  • Focused on fostering a sense of empowerment and hope
  • Focused on promoting self-discovery in a safe space
  • Limited to a small number of participants allow everyone to participate fully.
