WHY: We NEED YOU! Parents and caregivers are such an invaluable resource and support system for a child or loved one with mental health struggles, including eating disorders. Watch this video to understand how IMPORTANT you are in the process!

 

Inspired by Emotion-Focused Family Therapy (EFFT) developed by Dr. Adele LaFrance, this evidence-based 3-hour group will introduce and apply practical skills to strengthen relationships and respond to strong emotional reactions – expressions of worry, anger, hopelessness, and even silence. These skills can be invaluable when supporting your loved one through family based treatment in eating disorder recovery. 

 

Parents and caregivers will learn the basics of  navigating and guiding their loved one experiencing big feelings, emotional dysregulation, or mental health concerns such as eating disorders. 

 

Different from other mainstream parenting models, EFFT is rooted in a deep belief in the healing power of families. Parents and their child are "wired" together; the model supports parents being active agents of healing through providing tools to restore connection in their relationship with their child, and feel more empowered when met with tough parenting situations such as food refusal . Parents will also be supported to identify, work through, and overcome many obstacles that surface through the journey of emotional and behavioral change.

This group is introductory and does not take the place of individual work with a therapist or dietitian. The group is intended to be educational and supportive in nature.

*The group is led by both a Licensed Professional Counselor and Registered Dietitian. Both are trained in the EFFT model and Certified Eating Disorders Specialists

*Led by Elizabeth Bolton, LPC, CEDS & Jill Sechi, RDN, CEDRD-S

Binge Eating Disorder Recovery Group (18+yr)

TO REGISTER: Contact Megan Brannan at brannanpsychology@gmail.com

WHY: Binge Eating Disorder is the most common eating disorder and yet, is often talked about the least. Did you know binge eating disorder is three times as common as anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa combined?

 

Those with binge eating disorder often suffer in silence, filled with shame and guilt. Often, repeated self-promises to never binge again are met with attempts to control one’s food intake, which then lead one to fall into the cycle of binge eating once more. The Binge Eating Disorder Recovery Group is a space for those struggling with binge eating to come together, share their experiences, and connect with those with similar struggles. Group members will have the opportunity to share their experiences and struggles, while also offering support to one another in a safe environment.

 

This virtual group is a combination of processing, psychoeducation, nutrition education and support facilitated by Megan Brannan, PhD, CEDS, and Brenna Topham, RDN, LD and uses the book, Binge Eating Disorder: The Journey to Recovery and Beyond by Amy Pershing and Chevese Turner as a guide in shaping the group experience.

*Please note this is a closed group.

*Please note 18 year olds must be out of high school and not in FBT to participate in group

BOOK: No Weigh! A Teen's Guide to Positive Body Image, Food, and Emotional Wisdom - by Wendy Sterling

COST: $50 per session 

            $360 if prepaying for 8 weeks ($45 per session)

            BCBS insurance accepted

TO REGISTER: Email info@wcandnt.com

 

WHY: As school is off to a swift start, you may feel like you're the only one striving for food peace and body acceptance. Let's get together and chat about how nutrition practices can make us feel at home in our bodies! We will explore how stress, genes, movement, and cravings (to name just several!) impact the way we eat.
 

This group is designed to help teens connect with their peers in a safe environment and to support them as they develop a healthy relationship with food that will serve them for the rest of their lives. Under the careful supervision of Laura Brooks, RDN, LD, the teens in this support group will learn to offer and receive support in a healthy way that avoids the pitfalls of self-pity and peer-reinforced disordered eating. ​

Each week, this group will tackle a new nutrition-focused topic. They will debunk common myths about diets and "forbidden" foods, create strategies to avoid potential triggers, and learn exactly how bodies change over the teen years and why balanced nutrition is so important for this development. 

Young Adult Anti-Diet Group (18-25 yr)

WHY: So, you’re an adult now. This exciting time in your life involves looking back on where you came from, and looking forward to where you're going. Looking back, you might discover that your childhood was filled with dieting parents, peers, or maybe even an eating disorder. As you look to your future, you decide you want a better relationship with food. This can often feel lonely, as many of your family and friends may still be entrenched in diet culture. 


This group offers a connection to other young adults building positive relationships with food. Using Christy Harrison’s Anti-Diet: Reclaim Your Time, Money, Well-Being, and Happiness Through Intuitive Eating, we will discuss why diets are so popular, how they’re harmful, and what to do to build a healthier relationship with food. This group will be led by Brenna Topham, RDN, LD

Men's Eating Disorder Recovery Group (18+yr)
