Virtual Alumni Winter Event

Renfrew's Ultimate Holiday Guide:
Maintaining Relationships & Connection in Recovery

The approaching holiday season may look different for many of us this year as we continue to adjust to a predominantly virtual world and decreased social interaction. Missing out on annual celebrations can elicit desolation and isolation for some, resulting in a negative impact for those who thrive on relational support throughout recovery. For others, feelings of relief or even guilt may arise as they are not required to participate in traditional gatherings focused around food and in-person engagement.

How do we get back to the joyous, warm feelings often surrounding this time of year? And, how can we protect our emotional well-being while being distanced from family and friends? This workshop will explore these important questions and offer concrete tips to maintain relationships over the holidays, with a strong emphasis on virtual connection.

Attendees will:

• Learn skills to tolerate the range of emotions that may emerge over the holidays.
• Discuss ways to advocate for themselves and their recovery.
• Use experiential therapy to explore the relationship between holidays and emotions.
• Develop a plan for staying recovery-focused through the holiday season.

Date: Tuesday, December 8, 2020
Time: 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm (EST)
Held Online via Zoom: A link will be emailed out prior to the event

Offering Virtual College Programming During Winter Break

College life often brings with it complex and difficult paths to navigate for students, particularly for those with an eating disorder. Academics, social situations and new levels of independence are exciting and yet, at times, stressful. Winter break can provide students the opportunity to recenter before returning to school, whether virtual or in-person, with renewed strength and confidence.

For college-aged students who choose to participate, The Renfrew Center of Southern New Jersey has integrated specialized programming into both its Virtual Day Treatment and Virtual Intensive Outpatient levels of care to address the many challenges students face while trying to balance recovery with their other ongoing responsibilities.
