Eating Disorder Transitional Group Process & Skills Integration

$45/Group - [Monday 6:00 - 7:15 PM]

Are you transitioning out of eating disorder treatment?
 
Looking for extra support as you reintegrate into daily life?

Eating Disorder Transitional Group: Integrate evidence-based therapies like ACT, DBT, RO DBT, CBT, and self-compassion work.

Using evidence-based approaches such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Radically Open DBT (RO DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and self-compassion work, this group provides a safe and supportive environment for individuals who are seeking to build upon their strengths and develop practical skills to help them navigate life after intensive treatment.

Stepping down from intensive treatment can be a challenging and overwhelming experience, particularly when it comes to areas such as work, school, grocery shopping, nourishing our minds, bodies, and relationships. That's why our group focuses on these specific areas to help you overcome any obstacles that may arise and maintain the work you did in treatment to thrive in your daily life.

 

Our strength-based approach emphasizes your innate resilience and ability to overcome challenges, and our focus on self-compassion ensures that you learn to treat yourself with kindness and understanding. 

 

If you're interested in joining the Eating Disorder Transitional Group or learning more about our approach, please contact us today.

Teen Eating Disorder Recovery Skills Integration Group

Teen Eating Disorder Recovery Skills Integration Group

$65/Group - [Tuesday 4:00 - 5:15 PM PT]

This ongoing weekly virtual support group provides a safe and supportive space for adolescents to discuss their relationship with food, body image, and the pressures of diet culture.

With the added stress of the pandemic, individuals may be struggling with these issues in isolation, and our group aims to provide community support. We promote a Health at Every Size (HAES®) informed, weight-inclusive approach that challenges diet culture, body size stigmas, and stereotypes.

Adolescents of all genders between the ages of 12-17 in different stages of recovery from chronic dieting, disordered eating, and eating disorders are welcome. The group's focus is on building self-esteem, improving body image, and establishing a strong community of support.

Community Guidelines

  • Be your authentic self and be respectful of others. You might not always agree with what other members have to say; that’s okay. We want to promote a “brave” space where messy topics can be discussed and debated, as long as you treat others with the same respect as you’d like them to have for you. That means no harassment, bullying, or name-calling. Mean-spirited talk about anyone’s appearance is not allowed.

  • All bodies are welcome here. Remember that people with eating disorders come in all shapes and sizes. This is a size inclusive space. It is critical that everyone feel safe here no matter what their weight/shape/size may be. Please refrain from using fat shaming or weight stigmatizing language, or language that suggests weight loss as a treatment goal.

  • All people are welcome here. People struggling with eating disorders come from every race, culture, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic group, physical ability, political orientation and religious/spiritual tradition.

  • Respect different levels of recovery, and be mindful of others' healing processes. It is important to be respectful of the fact that others may be in a different place in their healing process than you are.

  • Leave the numbers out of it. Weight, BMI, clothing size, diet tips or the calories you ate today don’t belong in this group.
