Eating Disorders Awareness Week 2023: Empowering Self-Image Art Group
Wednesday, March 1, 2023 • 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm (ET)
Live Interactive Event
Led by: Kyle Congdon, ATR-BC & Sondra Rosenberg, ATR-BC
In honor of Eating Disorders Awareness Week, this art therapy workshop will empower participants to reexamine preconceived notions about our struggles, vulnerabilities and self-worth. We will use discussion and art-making to envision what strength and power could look like in each of us and how we can work with and build on the very qualities that we resist within ourselves.
*Please have a paper, pencil and any other desired art supplies on hand for this group.
The Renfrew Center is proud to join other eating disorder organizations throughout the country to celebrate Eating Disorders Awareness Week, held February 27 – March 5, 2023. Our theme this year, We’ve Got the Power, aims to acknowledge the effects of societal pressures to look or live a certain way. Learn more about our campaign as well as other events here.
