Family and Friends Support Group for eating disorders Nov. 7

Submitted Article

 

 The St. Cloud Hospital Behavioral Health Clinic will offer a Family and Friends Support Group for Eating Disorders from 4:30-6 p.m. Nov. 7 at CentraCare Health Plaza (use Woodland’s entrance) in the Leonard, Street & Deinard room. This month’s topic will cover “Supporting your loved one through the holidays.”
 
Groups are led by a licensed psychologist or registered dietitian and provide support — through education and sharing — to friends and family of individuals with eating disorders. Participants will learn tips for making mealtimes less stressful, how to respond to food and body image struggles and what to say or not to say.
 
This group is intended for family members and friends of a person with an eating disorder and is NOT appropriate for people who currently struggle with an eating disorder. There is no cost to attend. For more information, please call Bette Bakke, PhD, LP, at (320) 229-4918.
