  • Are you the parent of a child with an eating disorder?
  • Do you blame yourself for your child’s illness and/or struggles?
  • Does this self-blame weigh you down?

Join us for an experiential workshop where you will have the opportunity to release some of the pain of parental self-blame. Facilitated by Dr. Adele Lafrance and rooted deeply in compassion, this workshop will involve individual and group exercises to move through the guilt and shame that often surface when supporting a child with an eating disorder, no matter their age.
