Presented by: Ava Pollack, MA, LCMHCA, Primary Therapist & Alumni Representative, The Renfrew Center of Charlotte

Held Online

The past year has presented a variety of challenges for everyone— limited social interaction, adjusting to a virtual school or work environment, possible income changes, travel barriers, and more. With so much uncertainty in the world, stress, anxiety, depression, and feelings of isolation are on the rise. For those struggling with an eating disorder, these conditions can potentially lead to a detour along the path to recovery.

This webinar will acknowledge the shared experiences among those in the eating disorder community during these unpredictable times. Attendees will participate in an activity exploring the process of control and learn how to tolerate the unknowns of recovery. Additionally, tools to deal with overwhelming experiences will be provided, and modes of support will be discussed.
