EDSNA Events and Collaborations – 2018

Evening of Hope


Dr. Angela Grace is seeking artists excited to share their story of eating disorder hope and inspiration. Through a 3-5 minute performance using their medium of choice (music, dance, drama, poetry, or spoken word), participants will celebrate healing and raise awareness of eating disorders and body image issues. Visual and tactile art is graciously welcomed as well – anything that shares a sense of hope and optimism.

  • Date of Performance: Saturday, February 2, 2019
  • Performance Time: 7pm – 10pm
  • Location: CALGARY

Please submit audition videos or proposals before January 10, 2019. Alternately, you can arrange to meet with Angela in person.

There are also opportunities for those who wish to volunteer, but not to perform or submit visual art – please refer to the “Details” page. Offers of sponsorship are appreciated.

Support Group:

Emotion Regulation Skills for Adolescents with Eating Disorders


Calgary Silver Linings Foundation offers an emotion regulation skills group for adolescents with eating disorders. This 10-week skills group for adolescents (14 to 17 years of age) will focus on learning and building healthy emotion regulation skills.

To promote generalization of emotion regulation strategies at home, caregivers will attend Session #3, #6, and #9 with their adolescent.

This group does not differentiate between the different types of eating disorders because it is Calgary Silver Linings Foundation’s goal to focus on the underlying emotional issues that are common to all eating disorders.

Eligibility for the group:
To participate in the group, adolescents must be actively involved with a treatment team for their eating disorder and be medically stable. Adolescents must also not be suicidal. Both caregiver and adolescent must consent to participating in the group.

Group begins January 29, 2019
