FIRST THINGS FIRST FOR EATING DISORDERS is a free monthly interactive motivational workshop for those affected by an Eating Disorder. This popular group program was developed and is led by veteran Psychotherapist and eating disorders specialist William Skerker, LCSW, LRSW, and is Co-Administered by Ellen Schieren who provides personalized phone help and support. Many attendees have reported that First Things First has helped them increase their sense of self-worth, mobilized them towards recovery, and has bolstered their commitment to decisions and behaviors that lead to a healthier and more fulfilling life experience.
FIRST THINGS FIRST FOR EATING DISORDERS delivers a pro-treatment and pro-recovery message. It asks key questions about what you truly want, what your agendas might be, and helps participants identify and overcome obstacles and conflicts that prevent them from reaching healthy goals. Each First Things First topic reflects both a theoretical position and its practical application for Eating Disordered individuals seeking permanent recovery.
FIRST THINGS FIRST FOR EATING DISORDERS is free of charge, and free of obligation. Your one-time email or phone registration allows you to attend as many meetings as you would like without re-registering. Your personal information will remain private.
