About this event

Each day we wake up , we set our minds and our hearts for the challenges ahead, and we choose for one more day to make recovery our number one priority. But the moment we step outside our door we are confronted with ever more messages and images that reinforce the perpetuation of the very disorder we are striving to recover from! Most challenging of all, we are forced to confront on a daily basis the assumptions and opinions of others who do not understand what we suffer from and believe that an eating disorder is a choice, not a disease. They do not understand that unlike others in recovery, we cannot just stay away from food…or “just eat”. It is not that simple. Dr. Kenneth Weiner has dedicated more than 25 years to developing effective and innovative approaches for overcoming these very challenges. In this inspiring and empowering teleconference, Dr. Weiner shares his recommendations for how to achieve sustainable recovery in spite of the environmental obstacles we often face along the way.
