About this support group session

How do you separate your loved one from the eating disorder, while maintaining your own healthy boundaries in the process? This session will discuss these very issues, and offer practical steps you can implement in your own home.

This session will include:

  • Reconnecting with -and setting new- boundaries
  • Disentangling your child from the eating disorder (“is this them, or is it the illness?”)
  • Ways to communicate without ‘taking the bait’

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.
