Support Group for Eating Disorders
Calgary Silver Linings Foundation operates a support group for those struggling with eating disorders.
This 8-week support group for individuals (18 years and above) will primarily focus on psycho-education on the nature of emotions and understanding the significance of distress tolerance skills. Participants will have an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of their struggles, share their experiences, challenges and successes with each other in a safe and structured environment.
This group will help participants to:
explore the deeper emotional motivators that keep an eating disorder in a person’s life,
maintain motivation and hope in the recovery process,
gain a deeper understanding of the role of emotions in the recovery process, and
discuss coping skills and how to use them in a way that makes a difference.
This group does not differentiate between the different types of eating disorders because it is not our goal to discuss particular eating disorder behaviours. The group supports the struggle that individuals go through and focuses on underlying emotional issues that are common to all eating disorders.
This support group is not therapy and is not substitute for treatment.
Registration is now open.
There is a minimal registration fee of $100 for 8 sessions. Fees cover a portion of the cost of the group to the foundation (therapist, space rental, etc.) and is meant to make the offering of our programs sustainable over time
