Movement can be a major challenge for individuals in eating disorder recovery. Whether exercise is something you enjoy, avoid or are apathic towards, there is a relationship with your body through movement that can become intertwined with the eating disorder and impact recovery.

During this webinar, the motivation behind exercise and how to develop a positive relationship with physical activity will be explored. Attendees will learn tools to assist with identifying values related to physical activity, understand the motivation for exercise and impact of movement on recovery (nutrition, therapy and distress tolerance).
