Loving Someone With an Eating Disorder @ Rock Community Center

Join local non-profit Rock Recovery and Washington, DC author, psychologist and eating disorder expert, Dr. Dana Harron, for a special community workshop on navigating eating disorder recovery in romantic relationships.

In her newest book, Loving Someone With an Eating Disorder: Understanding, Supporting and Connecting With Your Partner, Dr. Harron digs deep on the everyday issues that couples may face when one partner is in recovery. Through this workshop, she will use the lessons from her book to guide participants through various topics such as parenting, intimacy, and practicing self-care.

Participants will learn to:

– Understand eating disorders from the inside out
– Help your partner without losing yourself
– Create healthy boundaries
– Establish good communication

This event will take place from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM and a light breakfast will be provided.
