MentorCONNECT Presents: Family Healing and Communication with Drs. Dennis and Selinger
Wednesday, January 12, 2011 from 8:00 PM to 9:15 PM (CST)
Event Description: Are you in recovery from an eating disorder, surrounded by well-meaning family and friends, yet you often feel frustrated by your inability to ask for and receive the kind of support you really need? Are you a significant other, family member, or friend who has a loved one in recovery, and you often find yourself struggling to know what to say and do to show your support?
This special teleconference is designed to serve as a guide for family members, significant others, and friends who are in a position of supporting a loved one through the process of eating disorder recovery.
Dr. Kimberly Dennis and Dr. Stan Selinger are experts in facilitating family communication and healing. Together, they will lead us through a teleconference that focuses on frequently asked questions and practical tips and techniques that significant others, family members, and friends can use to build and deepen the bonds of support with a recovering loved one.
Recovering persons and their families, friends, and significant others are warmly encouraged to attend and participate together.
