6 week group starting Tuesday, March 21, 2017
In a therapist-led supportive environment, participants are introduced to the process of relating more comfortably to food and one's body. Because we regard all eating problems as expressive of the emotional and social struggles women experience, these educational groups are designed to work effectively with the continuum of problematic eating, from compulsive and binge eating to anorexia, bulimia, and chronic dieting. Our groups are open to women of all colors, sizes, sexual orientations and identities. Groups help women rediscover this lost relationship with their bodies and needs. Our only requirement for participation is an interest in developing a more harmonious relationship with food and one's body. Participants are encouraged to personalize and internalize the group experience.
