A Speaker Series Offering Education and Discussion
about all Things Eating Disorder and Body Image

Are you interested in learning more about eating disorders or disordered eating from professionals who specialize?

Do you provide services to those with eating disorders or disordered eating and want to learn more about how to best support them?

Do you want more than the standard informational presentation?

Then you have come to the right place.

We are professionals who treat people with eating disorders, disordered eating, and body image concerns. Our goal here is to provide a space to learn about topics related to these issues. Our hope is for folks to come away with increased understanding about eating and body issues, as well as ideas for improving their relationship to body and food.

Once a month, we will provide a valuable-for-real-life, informational presentation by a speaker with expertise in this field (e.g., therapists, dietitians, and physicians). The presentations will cover a wide variety of topics related to eating disorders, disordered eating, and/or body image. You will always have a chance to ask questions at the end.

These meetings are open to anyone interested in learning more about eating disorders, disordered eating, body image and related concerns. This might include people struggling with eating disorders, those in recovery, those who know someone with an eating disorder, or those who treat people with eating disorders. Eating Disorders Round Table is a place for community. At the risk of sounding corny, everyone has a place at our table.

Round Table #3

Topic: Do you ever wonder why you eat even if you don’t want to?

Do you wish you could stop binge eating but no matter how hard you try, you can’t? Do you wonder why you have this issue? You may understand your behaviors around food but have no clue about the emotions that lead to the behaviors. I will help you understand the underlying emotions to your thoughts and behaviors around food. Through this, you may leave with a deeper sense of compassion and empathy for your food thoughts and behaviors and learn some techniques to deal with them. It isn’t about food or your body. It’s about your feelings. Come and learn what they are and how to heal.
