There will be a sign with the CAMFT logo and Sierra Foothills Chapter on the door of Overmiller Hall.

In the U.S., 20 million women and 10 million men suffer from an eating disorder--and an immeasurable number of loved ones suffer alongside them, uncertain how to help or cope. Those in recovery often feel shame about having struggled, even when they experience the freedom of recovery. We struggle to own our story and often end up suffering in a new way as we try to manage life after the eating disorder. As author Brene Brown, Ph.D., LMSW, noted, "The irony is that we attempt to disown our difficult stories to appear more whole or more acceptable, but our wholeness actually depends on the integration of all our experiences, including the falls." Discover what it means to fall into an eating disorder--and how to be brave, embrace vulnerability, and rise strong in life after. Experiential activities based on the work of Dr. Brown will be provided.
