Eating Disorders Round Table
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.
MARCH 11th, 2020 --> Bayley Johnson “The Joy of Movement”
A discussion of the benefits of movement for eating disorder recovery. We will cover areas such as: ‘Why movement as a modality?’ ‘How do I shift my current mindset of exercise to a healthier one?’ And we may even have time to try out a movement skill or two together. Movement and expressive dance builds trust, self-confidence, self-respect, and self-compassion. Other known benefits include lowered blood pressure, improved insulin response, and decreased feelings of depression and anxiety. Come and learn the joy of movement to add to your path of healing and growth! We hope to see you there!
