It's Not About the Food: Path to Healing & Well-being

The relationship that we have with food sometimes can be complex; so much so that it becomes more about how we cope with distress rather than just about food. We may struggle to cope with intense emotions, self-esteem, relationships, and so much more. The struggle to cope sometimes can lead to an unhealthy relationship with food. This workshop is for students who are experiencing concerns with eating and is intended to approach these concerns from a variety of perspectives and to share helpful information and tips. Please join us in this workshop series to learn various coping skills and begin your path towards healing. This workshop with be offered on Fridays at 1pm starting March 12, 2021 and will be hosted by various facilitators.
