Eating Disorder Therapy Group
Research data indicates group therapy can be a helpful addition to individual therapy for the treatment of eating disorders. Group therapy can help participants to bond over shared experiences, provide a sense of social support and solidarity, and assist participants to work collectively to challenge factors which may be impeding therapeutic progress. We are pleased to offer a group therapy program which incorporates the leading approaches in effective eating disorder treatment.
What Group Treatment Techniques Do We Use?
• Cognitive Behavioral techniques to challenge negative self-thoughts which may be impacting recovery
• Interpersonal psychotherapy techniques to discuss the role of maladaptive social comparison, people pleasing, fear of rejection, self-silencing, and self-monitoring in eating disorder symptoms
• Dissonance-based techniques to examine the impact of sociocultural messages in the internalization of the thin-ideal
• Motivational interviewing techniques to explore personal feelings of anxiety and resistance associated with overcoming disordered eating
