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 February 19, 2019
