Wanted to remind everyone that we have a few groups here at WC&NT. We have a few spots open still.

WHY: As school is off to a swift start, you may feel like you’re the only one striving for food peace and body acceptance. Let’s get together and chat about how nutrition practices can make us feel at home in our bodies! We will explore how stress, genes, movement, and cravings (to name just several!) impact the way we eat.
This group is designed to help teens connect with their peers in a safe environment and to support them as they develop a healthy relationship with food that will serve them for the rest of their lives. Under the careful supervision of Laura Brooks, RDN, LD, the teens in this support group will learn to offer and receive support in a healthy way that avoids the pitfalls of self-pity and peer-reinforced disordered eating.
Each week, this group will tackle a new nutrition-focused topic. They will debunk common myths about diets and “forbidden” foods, create strategies to avoid potential triggers, and learn exactly how bodies change over the teen years and why balanced nutrition is so important for this development.

WHY: Did you know that Binge Eating Disorder is 3x as common as anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa combined?
Those with binge eating disorder often suffer in silence, filled with feelings of shame, guilt, and isolation. This support group aims to change this.
The Binge Eating Disorder Recovery Group is a space for those who are struggling with binge eating. It is a place to come together, share experiences, and connect with others who struggle similarly. Group members will have the opportunity to share their experiences and struggles and to provide support to others struggling similarly.
This virtual group utilizes a combination of processing, psychoeducation, nutrition education, and support, all under the care and guidance of Megan Brannan, PhD, CEDS and Brenna Topham, RDN, LD.
*Please note this is a closed group.
