Presented by: Ashley Moser, LMFT, CEDS - Clinical Education Specialist, The Renfrew Center

Held Online

While mainstream messages reinforce the belief that you must ‘love yourself before you can love someone else’, it is common for people to struggle with self-love, acceptance and self-esteem while navigating dating and relationships. Even more so for those with eating disorders, the complexities of managing relationships while struggling with food and body image can be challenging.

In this webinar, we will explore the intersection of eating disorders and romantic relationships across statuses of being single, dating and in committed relationships. Participants will learn ways to respond to the emotions evoked by relationships, communicate needs and balance these internal and external challenges.
