Everyone has a story. Elizabeth Catanese, Renfrew Alum and author of The College Mindfulness Workbook, will discuss how mindfulness, which she first (reluctantly!) learned about in treatment at Renfrew, has helped her to stay actively engaged in eating disorder recovery for over ten years. Elizabeth will lead attendees in a mindfulness activity from her workbook, with an opportunity for Q&A at the end facilitated by Renfrew’s Alumni Services Coordinator, Erin Birely, LCPC.
