Event description
Parents and caregivers can absolutely be the strongest allies on their loved one's journey towards eating disorder recovery!

About this Event

Does your child, or someone you know—young or adult—suffer from an eating disorder? Do you struggle with their behavior and/or setting limits and/or how to respond to their emotions?

Inspired by Emotion-Focused Family Therapy – and with a healthy dose of humor - this evidence-based workshop will introduce practical skills to strengthen relationships, increase cooperation and respond to strong emotional reactions, including expressions of worry, anger, hopelessness, even silence. Parents and caregivers will learn to navigate and guide their loved ones experiencing big feelings, emotional dysregulation and/or mental health issues.

Different from other mainstream parenting models, EFFT is rooted in a deep belief in the healing power of families. The model provides parents the tools to restore connection in their relationship with their child, and feel more empowered when met with tough parenting situations at home. Parents will also be supported to identify, work through, and overcome many obstacles that surface through the journey of emotional and behavioral change.

This online variation of the 2-day Caregiver Workshop allows space for learning and integration between each session.
