Campus Eating Disorder Awareness and Recovery Group (CEDAR)

This group is open to U of A students seeking support, education, and therapy around the subjects of eating disorders, disordered eating, and body image. This semester, the intention for this group will be to shift the focus from weight to physical and emotional well-being. We will look at evidence-based approaches for helping anyone struggling with food, weight and/or body image concerns.

Who can benefit from this group? 

Anyone who has ever bought into/been affected by cultural and quasi-scientific assumptions about weight and health.

Topics will include: 

  • Respect for people of all sizes. 
  • Critical awareness, compassionate self-care, and life-enhancing movement. 
  • We will look at social justice implications and develop practical tools to support a change in focus.
