From Self-Criticism to Self-Compassion in Eating Disorder Recovery

Wednesday, April 19, 2023 • 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm (ET)

Free | Interactive Webinar
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm (ET)

Presented by: Chelsea Darida, MSW, LCSW - Primary Therapist & Alumni Representative, The Renfrew Center

Held Online

Self-compassion is simply the process of turning compassion inward. Many of us may find it easy to be compassionate to others, but difficult to extend that same compassion towards ourselves. We may resort instead to self-criticism or self-doubt.

This webinar will explore the concept of self-compassion and its three key elements: self-kindness, common humanity and mindfulness. Attendees will learn why self-compassion is so significant in eating disorder recovery and leave with everyday strategies to practice and incorporate self-compassion into their own recovery. These tools will include mindfulness, listening to emotional needs and building upon natural strengths to continue the recovery journey.
