Curating Community: A Non-Traditional Group Approach to Helping Clients Heal Their Relationships with Food and Bodies

This presentation focuses on the benefits of a non-traditional approach to group offerings in the eating disorder space. From an interdisciplinary approach, we combine the corners of nutrition and mental health in disordered eating care to facilitate an accessible weekly group community. As facilitators, learners will develop skills incorporating various elements like group norms, open discussion, and ongoing support to foster trust and a sense of belonging among participants.
