Eating Disorders, Diet and the Gut

4-hour workshop includes multiple presenters and the hands-on activity of building the digestive tract in clay on a scale model.

Increase your awareness of mental health issues that may be affecting your family, neighborhood, and community and gain knowledge to help others!  Learn the symptoms of disordered eating and exercising behaviors, risk factors, treatment and prevention, and how eating disorders harm our bodies. Discover ways to replace eating disorder thoughts/behaviors with solid nutrition information, nutrition goal setting and appropriate coping and problem-solving behaviors to achieve balance in your life.

Enjoy experiential learning through stress-reducing yoga exercises and a hands-on activity in which you will learn about the gut and build the digestive system in clay on a Torziken® Model.

The workshop ends with a woman’s personal story about how a healthy diet helped her healing process, followed by a Q & A session with licensed therapists and sharing of helpful resources and handouts.
