This group is suitable for parents, partners, friends, siblings, loved ones, and supporters of an individual with an eating disorder/disordered eating.

For groups for people with eating disorders, please refer to our full programming calendar.

After consulting with EDSNA facilitators, parents, clinicians at the Eating Disorder Foundation of Newfoundland & Labrador, and Mental Health Foundations, we have made some changes to our programming for parents, partners, and loved ones.

This group will still promote self-discovery in a safe space, and will also include guest speakers from the Eating Disorder Program at the University of Alberta Hospital (Unit 4F4).

Participants will:

  • Learn how each member of the treatment team (dietitian, nurse, psychiatrist, recreation therapist) supports recovery
  • Have the opportunity to ask questions of these professionals who assist in the treatment process.

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
  • Limited to a small number of participants allow everyone to participate fully.

About Your Facilitator

Renata Logan, R.Psych

Renata Logan is a registered psychologist with a special interest in interpersonal issues, chronic disease management, grief, personal growth and eating disorders. Basing her work in a holistic frame, Renata believes that the source for all healing and lasting, positive change is rooted in the mind-body-spirit triad, as well as the family-community connection. While her formal training has been in family systems with components of cognitive-based therapies, her work is expanding to include more body-centered therapies, including Emotion-Focused Therapy, Hakomi, Integrative Body Psychotherapy and Yoga Therapy. Renata particularly enjoys working with parents, helping to remind them of what unique wisdom they hold. Outside the therapy room, Renata enjoys outdoor adventures, cultural/artistic events, and treasured time with her loved ones.
