THE ART OF RECOVERY
An Exhibit of Artwork by Individuals in Recovery from Eating Disorders
Looking at the visual art expressions of individuals in treatment for eating disorders can give us a profound window into their experiences. This digital slideshow will focus on common themes and motifs that show up in the art, with commentary and analysis provided by Sondra Rosenberg, ATR-BC, Renfrew’s Creative Arts Therapies Supervisor and Wendy Cramer, MEd, Senior Professional Relations Representative. There will also be a special guest appearance by a Renfrew Alum.
Attendees will gain a deeper understanding of the various inner conflicts that give rise to disordered eating.
